Phoenix Suns forwards Marcus and Markieff Morris have been formally charged with felony aggravated assault in an incident that occurred at a Valley rec center January 24.

Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby released a statement on the matter Tuesday afternoon:

“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.”

The twins, who just finished their fourth year in the league, also released a statement:

“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, the Morris’ agent with Creative Artists Agency released the following:

“Markieff and Marcus are good men and I am confident that when all the facts come out, their names will be cleared.”
