Phoenix Suns' Morris twins charged in assault case

Phoenix Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby has issued the following statement: "We are disappointed to learn that Marcus and Markieff Morris have been charged. This is a serious matter, and we will treat it as such. However, at this time, we think it is most appropriate to continue to monitor the legal process as it unfolds before responding further."

Both Marcus and Markieff issued the following statement following the announcement by police. "We have been advised by our attorneys not to discuss this case or make any statements about it. We are sorry for the distraction this has caused to our fans and the Suns."

Leon Rose represents the Creative Artists Agency, the agents for both players, said "Markieff and Marcus are good men and I am confident that when all the facts come out, their names will be cleared."
