Nerlens Noel suspended for 5 games


“Dallas Mavericks center Nerlens Noel has been suspended five games without pay for violating the league’s anti-drug program, the NBA announced on Tuesday. The program states that players are suspended five games after a third positive test for marijuana.

As a restricted free agent, Noel declined a four-year, $70 million offer from the Mavericks last summer, countering by asking for a maximum contract. According to sources, Mavs owner Mark Cuban immediately pulled the offer off the table and never made another one, with Noel eventually signing a one-year, $4.2 million qualifying offer after changing agents.”

Dude is a bust on so many levels. I’m still offended about the idea of trading Julius for him. lol
