NEW YORK – Pi­nag­multa ng NBA si Memphis Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes ng $35,000 dahil sa kanyang “inappropriate pub­lic comments” na tu­ma­tangkilik sa violence.

Inihayag ito ng NBA isang araw matapos ta­lu­nin ng Grizzlies ang Knicks, 103-95, para sa unang laro ng dalawang koponan matapos ma­sus­pinde si Barnes dahil sa pakikipag-away kay New York coach Derek Fisher noong Oktubre.

“Matt Barnes’ comments condoning violence do not reflect who we are as a league or the cha­racter of our players. His words are unacceptable and entirely inconsistent with the core prin­ciples of this game and the NBA,” sabi ni NBA vice president for basketball operations Ki­ki VanDeWeghe sa isang statement.

Ayon sa Commercial Appeal, sinabi ni Barnes sa pregame shootaround ng Grizzlies na: “Violence is never the answer, but sometimes it is.”

Nag-iwasan naman si­na Barnes at Fisher no­ong Sabado sa laro ng Mem­phis at New York.
