Marcus and Markieff Morris sign with agent Rich Paul

Share

Set to become unrestricted free agents next summer, Marcus and Markieff Morris have signed with agent Rich Paul and Lutch Sports Group as their new representation. 

Paul's most notable client is LeBron James, a child-hood friend of his. He has steadily become one of the most well-known agents in the NBA, also representing players like Ben Simmons and Eric (Drew) Bledsoe. 

The Morris twins both signed rookie-scale extensions with the Phoenix Suns in 2014. Marcus' was a four-year $20 million deal while Markieff signed for four years and $32 million. 

Morris was acquired in a trade by the Celtics in exchange for Avery Bradley and played a key role in Boston's run to the Eastern Conference Finals. He is slated to make about $5 million in his last season with the Celtics. Markieff Morris has played the last two-and-a-half seasons with the Washington Wizards. 

It is not yet clear whether the Celtics plan to re-sign Morris next summer, but given their current depth of wing players and potential luxury tax bill, it is unlikely he returns after this season.

The two brothers signing with the same agent might mean they are aiming to play together again.
