I was told by a breeder that males can live together if they are brought up together as well, and I did know someone who introduced two sub adult males together who lived quite comfortably for a while without a problem. I don't know what happened when the males reached maturity.

However, it doesn't seem like it's worth it. One bit of aggression when a person isn't around could be enough for a tail drop or injuries that could lead to infection and cepsus.

I don't even house hatchling together for more than a few weeks, because my first two clutchmates showed such a difference in growth rates because of feeding intimidation.
