NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is sharing a brief update regarding the investigation into Ja Morant’s second gun-flashing incident. As The Shade Room previously reported, Morant was suspended from “all team activities.” This occurred immediately after he brandished a weapon on Instagram Live in May.
The incident mirrors a similar one in March when Morant was at a Colorado strip club, as per The Shade Room.
According to CNN, Silver shared the update while speaking to reporters during a press conference on Thursday. During his statements, he revealed that the NBA has “uncovered a fair amount of additional information” into Morant’s recent actions.
“In terms of the timing, we’ve uncovered a fair amount of additional information I think…”
Silver added that the NBA could’ve brought the investigation’s finding to a “head.” However, the organization will hold off on announcing “the results of that investigation” until the conclusion of the NBA finals.
“I would say we probably could’ve brought it to a head now but we made the decision and I believe the players association agrees with us that it would be unfair to these players and these teams in the middle of this series to announce the results of that investigation… after the conclusion of the Finals…”
Furthermore, Silver also mentioned that Morant is now suspended “indefinitely” from the Memphis Grizzlies.
“…and given that we are of course in the offseason, he is now been suspended by the Memphis Grizzlies indefinitely so nothing would have changed anyway in the next few weeks.”
According to CNN, the end of the NBA finals may arrive on June 9 or 18.
As Silver awaits the conclusion of the NBA finals, Morant has apparently stepped away from social media use entirely. He revealed that he would be “taking a break from social media” after police conducted a wellness check on the basketball player.
This occurred on May 24 and was prompted by Morant sharing now-deleted goodbye messages to his family members.
