“Excessive and inappropriate”: NBPA director’s thoughts on Morant’s suspension

Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant was suspended for 25 games at the start of the 2023-2024 NBA season because of his appearance on Instagram, and NBPA director Tamika Tremaglio expressed the thought that the length of the suspension was a mistake during an interview with Rachel Nichols:

“We are here to protect and support the players, there is no doubt about that. And Ja is one of our players who has given so much to the league. All of us, including Ja, believe that a mistake was made, but I think to a certain extent there has to be an opportunity to correct it. And I think Ja is doing the things he needs to do to really improve himself and we are exceptionally proud of him and want to be able to support him in that.”

Nichols went on to ask Tremaglio if the NBPA and Morant agreed that the suspension is what it is.

“Nothing is ever what it is, right? This is what has been dictated, we fully understand that.”

It is clear that the NBPA and Tremaglio would still like to see Morant’s suspension shortened from the 25 games he received. Regardless, the Grizzlies are preparing for next season when they bring Morant back into the lineup.
