PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Suns have signed twin forwards Markieff and Marcus Morris to four-year contract extensions after both had career years in 2013-14.

Markieff signed for $32 million and Marcus' deal was for $20 million, a team official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because terms were not released.

Markieff set career highs last season with 13.8 points per game, 6.0 rebounds and 48.6 percent shooting in 81 games. Marcus also had a career year, with 9.7 points, 3.9 rebounds and 44.2 percent shooting.

The twins played together at Kansas and were reunited in the NBA in 2013, when the Suns acquired Marcus in a trade with Houston. Phoenix selected Markieff with the 13th overall pick of the 2011 NBA draft.
