The NBA is often described as a brotherhood. It turns out that description is both true in a literal and figurative sense.

Ahead of the 2022-23 NBA season, there are over 10 sets of siblings on rosters throughout the league, including a number of the league’s most notable stars.

We know about the Antetokounmpos, Balls and Currys, but what about the four sets of twins in the NBA this season? Perhaps the coolest sibling dynamics in the league exist between the five sets of brothers on the same team.

What siblings are in the NBA this season? Here is a full list.

NBA brothers: What siblings are in the NBA this season?

Seth and Stephen Curry

If you ever wondered if there was a 3-point shooting gene, look no further than the Currys.

The sons of 3-point marksman Dell Curry, Steph is the NBA’s all-time 3-point leader and a career 42.8 percent 3-point shooter. Seth hasn’t quite made as many 3s as big bro, but he is a career 43.9 percent 3-point shooter, which is the third-highest mark in league history.

Seth’s Nets face Steph’s Warriors on Dec. 21 and Jan. 22.

Giannis, Kostas and Thanasis Antetokounmpo

After a busy summer in which they were the subject of a Disney film, three of the four basketball-playing “Antetokounbros” are in the NBA.

Thanasis, the oldest of the four, is entering his fourth season in Milwaukee alongside his younger brother Giannis, who continues to write his legacy as an all-time great. After a year in France, Kostas, the third-youngest, is looking to land a roster spot with the Bulls.

Alex, the youngest of the family, is set to begin his first season with the Wisconsin Herd, the G League affiliate of the Bucks. The family’s presence in the Bucks organization is undeniable.

LaMelo, LiAngelo and Lonzo Ball

Just like LaVar Ball told us.

In 2017, Lonzo, the oldest of the trio, was selected second overall in the NBA Draft. Three years later, LaMelo, the youngest of the three, was selected third overall, making him and his brother the first set of brothers to both be selected in the top five of the NBA Draft.

While Lonzo is rehabbing a troublesome knee to get back on the floor for the Bulls, LaMelo is riding the momentum of earning an All-Star selection last year with the Hornets. After spending a year with their G League affiliate, LiAngelo, the middle brother, is fighting for a roster spot in Charlotte to play alongside his younger brother this season.

Aaron, Jrue and Justin Holiday

Once again, it’s Holiday season, as a trio of Holidays will take the floor in 2022-23.

After two years apart, Justin, the oldest of the three, is reunited with Aaron, the youngest of the three, as the two were acquired by the Hawks in the 2022 offseason. The two were teammates with the Pacers.

Jrue, the middle brother, has experienced the most NBA success of the three and will look to win his second NBA title with the Bucks this season.

Evan and Isaiah Mobley 100522

Evan and Isaiah Mobley

Evan was drafted a year earlier, but Isaiah is the older of the two brothers, who are now teammates in Cleveland.

Not only did the two grow up playing alongside one another, but they were also teammates during their collegiate days at Southern California. One year after Evan went third in the 2021 NBA Draft, Isaiah was selected 49th overall in the 2022 NBA Draft.

While Evan looks to build on an outstanding rookie campaign, Isaiah, a 6-foot-9 forward, will look to make his mark on a two-way deal with the Cavs and their G League affiliate, the Cleveland Charge.

Brook and Robin Lopez 100522

Brook and Robin Lopez

15 years in, the Lopez twins are still getting after it.

Brook was selected 10th overall after standing out at Stanford and Robin was selected 15th overall in the 2008 NBA Draft. Brook has had a more fruitful career, with an All-Star selection and an NBA title with the Bucks, but Robin will add a veteran presence to a Cavaliers team with high expectations.

The two did enjoy one season as teammates in Milwaukee before Robin moved on, but Brook is entering his fifth season with the Bucks.

Marcus and Markieff Morris 100522

Marcus and Markieff Morris

It’s year 12 for the Morris twins, who were selected one spot apart in the 2011 NBA Draft (Markieff went 13th, Marcus 14th).

For Marcus, it’s his third full season with the Clippers, who look to make a serious run for the title with Kawhi Leonard back in the lineup. The same can be said for Markieff’s Nets, who have assembled a deep roster, health permitting.

With one brother in New York and the other in LA, we could very well see the twins clash in the 2023 NBA Finals.

Moritz and Franz Wagner 100522

Franz and Moritz Wagner

Franz almost quietly had an outstanding rookie season, earning All-Rookie First Team honors with averages of 15.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists on .468/.354/.863 shooting splits over 79 games. It probably helped that one of his vets was his big brother, Moritz.

Moritz is four years Franz’s senior but the two both came over from Germany to play college ball at Michigan and now both are members of the Orlando Magic.

While Franz stands at the forefront of a youth movement in Orlando, Moritz has carved a role for himself as a solid reserve.

Juancho and Willy Hernangomez

It was a big summer for the Hernangomez brothers.

Let’s start with Juancho, who starred in Netflix’s feature film “Hustle” alongside Adam Sandler, causing many to now refer to him by his character’s name of Bo Cruz. As a free agent, Juancho signed with the Raptors and stands to earn a roster spot to shore up their frontcourt rotation.

Willy, who is entering his third season with the Pelicans, earned a cameo in the movie, but that wasn’t the highlight of his summer. Representing Spain alongside his brother, Willy was named Eurobasket MVP as the Spanish National Team claimed the gold medal.

The two look to build off of a big summer during this NBA season.

Caleb and Cody Martin 100522

Caleb and Cody Martin

The Martin twins were teammates throughout their lives, including high school, multiple stops in college and their first two years in the NBA. Last season was the first in which they were separated, with Caleb joining the Heat and Cody remaining with the Hornets.

As it turns out, the space wasn’t a bad thing for the twins, as Caleb averaged a career-high 9.2 points during his first season with the Heat, who would ultimately come within one win of the NBA Finals. Cody, too, averaged a career-high, putting up 7.7 points per game for the Hornets last season, though their postseason luck wasn’t as great.

As divisional foes, the Martins will still meet four times this season.

Jaden and Jalen McDaniels

Another NBA brother pair that includes a Hornet, you say?

Jalen McDaniels, a second-round pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, is now in his fourth year in Charlotte and has developed a reputation as a solid rotational player capable of making hustle plays and knocking down open shots. Jaden, the younger of the two, was a first-round pick in 2020 and is entering Year 3 with the Timberwolves, who value him as a key part of their future.

Adding to the family ties, the McDaniels brothers are cousins of retired NBA player Juwan Howard. 

Julian Champaginie Justin Champagnie 100522

Julian and Justin Champagnie

The Champagnies are the newest set of NBA brothers and another set of twins.

After going undrafted out of Pittsburgh in 2021, Justin signed a two-way deal with the Raptors, impressing with his rebounding, effort and commitment to improving as a shooter. Julian, who went undrafted out of St. John’s in 2022, has signed a two-way deal with the 76ers and looks to thrive in their development program.

With family involved, the Raptors-76ers rivalry just added another dynamic.
