ATLANTA – The NBA has suspended 76ers reserve forward Arnett Moultrie five games without pay for violating the league’s and NBA Players Association’s anti-drug policy.
The suspension begins with Monday night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena. He won’t be eligible to return April 11 against the Memphis Grizzlies.
The 6-foot-10, 240-pounder will not be able to compete for the Delaware 87ers, the Sixers NBA Development League affiliate, during the suspension. The second-year player out of Mississippi State was sent down to the Sevens on March 15. This is his second stint of the season with the D-League team.
He is averaging 10.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and one steal in a total of eight games during his two stints with the Sevens. Moultrie averaged three points, 2.9 rebounds and 15.6 minutes in his 12 appearances with the Sixers.
