PHOENIX – A trial will begin for NBA players Marcus and Markieff Morris, who allegedly assaulted a man outside a Phoenix recreation centre.
Maricopa County Superior Court officials announced the trial’s jury selection will start Wednesday.
The Morris brothers are accused of helping three other people beat 36-year-old Erik Hood on Jan. 24, 2015.
Hood told Phoenix police that he was repeatedly punched and kicked and sustained a fractured nose, abrasions and a large bump on his head.
Hood is an acquaintance of the Morris brothers and reportedly had a falling out with them in 2010.
The 6-foot-9 Morris twins became teammates in 2013 when Marcus was traded to the Suns.
Marcus was traded to the Boston Celtics in July, and Markieff is now with the Washington Wizards.
