All is not well at the Phoenix Suns, with one player demanding a trade out of Arizona.

Last summer, twins Markieff and Marcus Morris each took a little less money so they could play as teammates with the Phoenix Suns, as they had done since high school and then in college at the Kansas Jayhawks.

Trade Betrayal

Then the Suns head office went ahead and decided to trade Marcus to the Detroit Pistons in the off-season, which hasn't sat well with Markieff to say the very least.

The Suns were hoping that Markieff would come around to their way of thinking and understand their decision, but the opposite has happened, and Morris wants a trade.

Wanting Out

"One things for sure, I am not going to be there,” Morris said to the Philadelphia Enquirer after a morning workout at Competitive Edge Sports in King of Prussia.

“If you want to put that out there, you can put that out. ” he added. “I don’t give a F***. I am not going to be there at all. That’s just what it is.”

Markieff was drafted 13th overall to the Suns during the 2011 draft. His brother went one slot later to the Houston Rockets. The two are insanely close and didn't take too kindly to being broken up by the Suns.

The Suns did what they had to do in order to try and bring in top free agent LaMarcus Aldridge. That failed spectacularly when Aldridge went to the San Antonio Spurs and the Suns are left to deal with the fallout.
