Markieff and Marcus Morris smiled Saturday while they signed autographs at the Hunting Park Recreation Center in North Philadelphia. The twin forwards for the Phoenix Suns were sponsoring a back-to-school charity event, giving away 200 backpacks to students ages 5 to 15.

The twins are happier when they’re together. The Philadelphia natives played on the same teams growing up, in high school at Prep Charter and in college at Kansas. But they were separated early in their NBA careers when they were selected one pick apart in the 2011 NBA draft, until Marcus joined Markieff in Phoenix via a trade from the Houston Rockets in February 2013.

Off the court, the twins are inseparable.

“Wherever we’re together, it’s home,” Markieff said. “We just go out there and have fun. The game isn’t the same when we’re apart.”
