Markieff Morris already has his twin brother Marcus currently playing for the rival Boston Celtics after he was traded there in July. Now there could be another familiar face wearing green.
With their blockbuster deal with Cleveland on the table, the Celtics are weighing their options to fill the roster spots that would open as a result. It appears former fifth overall pick Thomas Robinson could earn one of those jobs.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Robinson worked out for the Celtics recently:

Robinson, 26, played with the Morris twins at Kansas and remains a good friend. Robinson attended Markieff's backback giveaway in Southeast Washington earlier this month wearing a hat from Morris' F.O.E. (Family Over Everything) clothing line. He is currently a free agent after playing last year with the Lakers.
The Wizards and Celtics have developed a bitter rivalry over the past several seasons, culminating with an eventful playoff series in May. But this offseason key figures that made that rivalry interesting have left like Jae Crowder (if the Cavs deal goes through), Kelly Olynyk, Jonas Jerebko and Avery Bradley. Meanwhile, familiar faces have entered the mix like Marcus Morris and Jayson Tatum, a good friend of Bradley Beal's. Robinson's addition would be yet another reason why the rivalry may be softer this season compared to last.
