A friend of the man accusing two former Phoenix Suns players of beating him in 2015 testified Thursday that she saw either Marcus or Markieff Morris, along with other men, beat the victim so badly that she had to take him to an emergency room. “He was like in a daze,” Sherika Sherad testified, describing her friend’s condition after the attack. “He was slurring (his words) sometimes, I didn’t know what he was saying.” Sherad, whose testimony started Wednesday and continued Thursday, told an 11-member jury that she called 911to report the Jan. 24, 2015, attack on Erik Hood. The Morris brothers played for the Suns at the time. They are standing trial this week along with a third man in Maricopa County Superior Court on charges related to the attack on Hood.
Storyline: Morris Twins Case
The Celtics will enter training camp with potentially 11 new players, including four new starters — Irving, Hayward, Marcus Morris, and perhaps Jaylen Brown to join Al Horford. Ainge also added Aron Baynes, Daniel Theis, and Shane Larkin, while taking Jayson Tatum and Semi Ojeleye in the draft. “This isn’t any sort of plan like we wanted to make a whole bunch of changes — part of it is just managing payroll and getting guys to fit on the court, just building a team,” Ainge said. “It’s not about getting rid of somebody or bringing new faces in, but in the world we live in today you have a salary cap and a luxury tax and there are short contracts that are attached. When I played, I signed a six-year contract. Now, most contracts are four years [at the longest]. It’s just the nature of our business and it’s not ideal not to have continuity. But there are rewards for a freshness. What really matters is how well they play and as I said, time is our judge.”
Jury selection is set to begin Wednesday in Phoenix in the aggravated assault trial of NBA players and identical twins Marcus and Markieff Morris. The Morris twins are among five men charged in a physical altercation outside of a high school basketball game in January 2015, while the twins were playing for the Phoenix Suns. Marcus Morris is currently a forward for the Boston Celtics. Markieff Morris is a forward for the Washington Wizards.
