HoopsHype Marcus Morris rumors

September 30, 2014 Updates

Marcus received $20 million over four years. The contract extensions start next year. Markieff and Marcus will play this season under their rookie contracts — $3.15 million and $3.11 million, respectively. That part really did not matter to them. It all goes to the same household — and even the same bank account for how they co-exist at work and home. "It didn't matter if it was me getting $5 million and Mook (Marcus) getting $8 million," Markieff said. "We told them it didn't matter. If they just put $13 (million) a year for the Morris twins, that would've been great. They wouldn't even have to say our names. "We're $52 million players." Arizona Republic

Marcus said Markieff's cut should have been higher. He also said they were not willing to wind up with different teams in free agency next year. "This deal doesn't show how good of a player I am," Marcus said. "This deal is about our financial stability for our family. I'm worth $52 million. They say I'm four-year, $20 million but, at the end of the day, $13 million is coming in our household every year. I'm worth $52 million and Keef's worth $52 million." Arizona Republic

The Phoenix Suns have reached contract extensions with twin brothers Markieff and Marcus Morris, the team announced Monday. The Arizona Republic reported Monday that Markieff Morris will receive a four-year deal worth $32 million while Marcus Morris will get a four-year deal worth $20 million. ESPN.com

"We are particularly pleased to have reached extension agreements with Marcus and Markieff before the start of training camp," president of basketball operations Lon Babby said in a release. "There is an extraordinary bond between these twin brothers; they make each other better players and better men. We take pride in their growth and look forward to their bright futures." ESPN.com

The hashtags have spoken. The winner, apparently, was #GMA, which represented a design dedicated to the twins' grandmother, Shirley. It was she who came up with the brothers' respective nicknames (Keef and Mook). After the Morris' childhood home was destroyed by a fire, the family moved in with Shirley. Grandmother and grandchildren developed a special bond from that time forward. NBA.com

Meanwhile, Markieff stayed in Babby's ear about acquiring his brother. "He told me every single day to get his brother," Babby said. "They were desperate to play together." The Suns listened, eventually acquiring Marcus for a second-round pick on Feb. 21. The NBA has had other twins in recent years – Brook and Robin Lopez and Jason and Jarron Collins – but the only previous twins teammates in NBA history were Dick and Tom Van Arsdale with the Suns during the 1976-77 season.
