Twin NBA players Marcus and Markieff Morris have put pen to paper to a three-year endorsement contract with AND-1, the basketball footwear and apparel company.
“The Morris twins are great young talent and embody everything we love about the AND 1 brand,” said Robert Purvy, AND 1 Brand President. “Markieff and Marcus bring it. With their hometown work ethic, hunger, and true passion for the Game, we’re proud to have them play a big part in the future of AND 1.”
"We've been fans of AND 1 as long as we can remember. We grew up on the MixTape, and to now be a part of the AND 1 family is really an honor," said Marcus Morris.
"For two guys from Philly, there's really no other brand we'd want to represent. We're excited to work together and promote the Game we love," said Markeiff Morris.
Both Marcus and Markieff have enjoyed great success at Kansas, and they were picked to be included in the 2011 NBA Draft. Markieff was selected by the Phoenix Suns with the 13th pick, and Marcus was selected by the Houston Rockets with the 14th pick. They are only the third set of twins selected in the round since the modern NBA draft began in 1966.
