The executive director of the NBA Players Association said Thursday the suspension given to Charlotte’s Jeffery Taylor by Commissioner Adam Silver is ”excessive, without precedent and a violation of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.”

Michele Roberts adds that the union is ready to file an immediate appeal, but that the choice is Taylor’s.

Silver suspended Taylor for 24 games without pay on Wednesday after the forward pleaded guilty last month to misdemeanor domestic violence assault and malicious destruction of hotel property.
