NBA to announce Ja Morant’s investigation result after the Finals, Silver says

Publish Date:06/03/2023
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver gave an update on Memphis Grizzlies guard Ja Morant’s latest investigation following a social media video showing him flashing a gun while in a vehicle last month.

Silver revealed that the league has “uncovered a fair amount of additional information” regarding Morant’s investigation. The commissioner then addressed why he did not announce the result immediately.

“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,” Silver said, as per CNN.

Silver decided to announce the result after the Finals between the Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat concluded.

“It seemed better to park that at the moment at least any public announcement and my sense now is that shortly after the conclusion of the Finals we will announce the outcome of that investigation,” he said before Game 1 in Denver on Thursday.

Silver on Morant’s previous suspension

The Grizzlies suspended Morant almost right after the second Instagram Live video surfaced showing him with a gun in May. The 23-year-old was also suspended over similar conduct two months prior. The exact time and location of the second video are still under investigation.

The reporters then asked if the initial eight-game suspension after the first video emerged made the NBA “taking it too lightly” and Silver defended his position and believed the suspension was “very serious.”

“So, I guess in hindsight I don’t know,” Silver said. “If it had been a 12-game suspension instead of an eight-game suspension would that have mattered? I don’t know. … It seemed appropriate at the time. That’s all I can say.”

ESPN reported Silver was “stunned” when the second video emerged and was “assuming the worst.”

He had a talk with Morant and he reminded the young star that actions speak louder than words.

“The conversation we had … felt very heartfelt and serious but I think he understood that it wasn’t about his words but it was going to be about his future conduct,” Silver said.

The NBA Finals could finish early on June 9 but it could be June 18 if Game 7 is required.
