Twin brothers Markieff and Marcus Morris have been reunited at the Phoenix Suns.

“We believe their bond is special and is going to make each of them better and therefore make our team better,” Lon Babby, the team president for basketball operations, told the New York Times.

It’s not the first time twins have played for Phoenix. Dick and Tom Van Arsdale were members of the team during the 1976-77 season.
