The NBA said today that Miles Bridges has been banned for 30 games without pay because of an incident of domestic violence.
The event happened in Los Angeles on June 27, 2022, and Mr. Bridges was caught and charged with several crimes.
Mr. Bridges pleaded "no contest" to a felony domestic violence charge on November 3, 2022, and the other charges against him were dropped.
The NBA did its own study into this situation. It looked at all the information that was available and talked to many third-party witnesses as well as the people involved.
The NBA also talked to a group of experts on domestic violence who help the league figure out what to do in cases like this. The 30-game suspension is based on all of the facts and circumstances of this case.
It takes into account the player's actions and how they turned out, as well as the results of the criminal case, among other things.
After being arrested and pleading guilty, Mr. Bridges did not sign a deal with the NBA for the 2022-23 season, so he missed all 82 games.
Because of this, the NBA has decided that 20 games of the ban have already been played. If Mr. Bridges gets a contract with the NBA, he will have to sit out the first 10 games that he would have been able to play in.
