The NBA has suspended Charlotte Hornets forward Jeff Taylor for 24 games without pay after he pleaded guilty last month to misdemeanor domestic violence assault and malicious destruction of hotel property.
Taylor will get credit for the 11 games he has missed, and will sit out an additional 13, which is slightly more than one-fourth of the league’s 82-game schedule.
“This suspension is necessary to protect the interests of the NBA and the public’s confidence in it,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in a release Wednesday. “Mr. Taylor’s conduct violates applicable law and, in my opinion, does not conform to standards of morality and is prejudicial and detrimental to the NBA.”
