The two brothers want to play together in Atlanta.

The Atlanta Braves just signed former Tampa Bay Rays outfielder B.J. Upton to a five-year, $75 million contract on Thursday. Now the organization could be looking into the possibility of adding Upton's younger brother, Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Justin Upton, according to a report on MLB.com.

Ever since B.J. signed on Thursday, the Upton brothers have been discussing the possibility of playing together in Atlanta.

"It's been a big conversation of ours," the elder Upton told MLB.com. "Obviously, he's got another three years [before he's a free agent]. Is it a possibility? Yes. Is it going to happen? We don't know. But it's definitely something that we are going to talk about."

Major League Baseball's winter meetings begin in Nashville, Tenn., on Monday, and talks of a possible trade between Atlanta and Arizona -- one in which the Braves would receive the younger Upton and the Diamondbacks would receive pitching prospects -- could ramp up, according to the report.
