OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma City Thunder forward Mitch McGary has been suspended without pay for at least 10 games for violating the terms of the league’s anti-drug policy.
The league announced Tuesday that the suspension will begin when he has finished serving a five-game drug suspension that was announced in July. After the previous suspension, McGary said in a statement that he needed to “take accountability and ensure that this does not happen again.”
McGary played just eight games his sophomore season at Michigan after electing to have back surgery, then tested positive for marijuana and faced a suspension, prompting him to enter the 2014 draft. The Thunder took him in the first round, and general manager Sam Presti said he was not worried about McGary’s past.
