Marcus Morris has reacted to his brother Markieff Morris signing with the Los Angeles Lakers, just days after he signed with the other Los Angeles team, the Clippers.
Markieff agreed to a buyout from the Detroit Pistons early Friday morning and was expected to meet with teams like the Lakers, Houston Rockets, and Toronto Raptors. In the end, the decision came down not long after the Clippers finished their second post-All-Star break practice.
Of course, Marcus showed his happiness for his brother. After having played in only three games for the Clippers so far, Morris says he’s looking forward to having Markieff in town with him.
“That’s my brother man,” Morris smiled. “Man, if he goes to LA, then shit, I’m gonna be in Staples Center all the time. I think maybe to y’all it might be weird that I’m going to all his games, but that’s what’ll probably happen. And we’ll probably get a house together.”
As usual, and more knowing they are twin brothers, the Morris have always been close, and previously played together with the Phoenix Suns.
Marcus was even asked what would happen if they faced each other in the playoffs, as the Lakers and Clippers are the biggest favorites to win the West this season.
“If one of us wins, we both win,” responded Morris. “That’s how we look at it. Obviously, I’m a Clipper, I’d love to win, we’re definitely gonna be competitors, but we’re both gonna work hard. It’ll probably be the first time where two players from two different teams are actually working out together. That’s gonna be cool.”
The Lakers and Clippers’ next matchup will take place on Sunday, March 8th, when the Clippers will be the home team. That will be the first time Marcus and Markieff will go head-to-head with their new, championship-contending teams.
