Marcus and Markieff Morris of the Suns, along with three others, are being investigated for felony aggravated assault after allegedly beating up a man who sent an inappropriate text to their mother. No charges have been filed. According to the police report, the victim, Erik Hood, says he was a former mentor and financial supporter of the twins. The Arizona Republic details:

Hood was beaten unconscious and his injuries included a broken nose.
