Sometimes, athleticism just runs in a family and sometimes relatives even share a love for the same sport. We have already seen plenty of sons carry on their fathers’ NBA legacies—and, of course, Jaden Ivey, whose mother Niele Ivey played in the WNBA—but some parents are fortunate enough to have two sons make it to the league.

Siblings often have similar interests, but it is rare that they all end up making it their profession. Over 70 sets of brothers have already made it to the NBA, however, either competing against each other or teaming up. Here is the full list.

How many Kings players have played with or against their brothers? 

Out of this list, several players had stops with the Kings, like Justin Holiday, Carl Landry, Delon Wright, John Barry, Brent Price, and Rodney McCray. 

Among current players on the roster, Keegan Murray is the only one with a brother in the league, as his twin Kris plays for the Portland Trail Blazers. Kessler Edwards has an older brother, Kameron, playing in the G League for the Ontario Clippers, however.
