The NBA has given NBA player Draymond Green an indefinite suspension for hitting Jusuf Nurkic during a matchup with the Phoenix Suns. While Bobby Marks of ESPN pointed out that Green may lose more than $2 million if suspended for 15 games and would have to pay a fine of $153,941 each game, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski confirmed the sentence. Talks concerning the Golden State Warriors’ financial and competitive ramifications have been spurred by this incident.
In the event that the NBA decides to impose a ban longer than 20 games, the veteran four-time All-Star will be assessed a fine of $202,922 per game, which could add up to a whopping $4 million if the suspension is extended to its maximum. The recent actions of Green, which happened during the game the night before, shocked the fans. The player explained what he had done, saying that he was only trying to get the authorities to call a call rather than hurt Nurkic.
Green shared; “I thought he was pulling my hip, and I was swinging a way to sell the call, and [I] made contact with him,” an article from sportskeeda.com mentioned.
He further added; “I sell calls with my arms. I don’t fall to sell a call, I’m not a flopper. So I was just selling the call because he was grabbing me and pulling my hip back. So I spun away, and, unfortunately, I hit him,” an article from sportskeeda.com mentioned.
