Toy gun or not, Adam Silver says basketball will take 'back seat' for Ja Morant

Jun 9, 2023

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver joined the Dan Patrick Show on Thursday morning and presented a different angle to how the league could handle Ja Morant's latest incident.

A lot of conversation has been focused on how many games Morant should be suspended, but Silver seems to believe that there is a better way to address the issues. The commissioner is suggesting a program to help Morant going forward.

The Memphis Grizzlies star was suspended eight games for conduct detrimental to the league after a previous incident in which he brandished a gun on March 4 in a Denver-area nightclub. Silver believed at the time that an eight-game suspension was severe.
