[Photo/IC]CHARLOTTE – The NBA has suspended Charlotte Hornets forward Jeffery Taylor for 24 games without pay after he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic violence assault and malicious destruction of hotel property last month.Taylor will get credit for the 11 games he has missed, and will sit out an additional 13, is slightly more than one-fourth of the leagues 82-game schedule.”This suspension is necessary to protect the interests of the NBA and the publics confidence in it,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a release Wednesday. “Mr. Taylors conduct violates applicable law and, in my opinion, does not conform to standards of morality and is prejudicial and detrimental to the NBA.”The suspension means Taylor will lose about $267,000 of his $915,000 salary this season.Taylor, 25, is in his third NBA season. He was sentenced to 18 months of probation. As part of his probation, he must complete 26 weeks in a domestic violence intervention program.The Hornets released a statement before Wednesday nights game against Indiana that read: “The NBA has informed us of its decision to suspend Jeffery Taylor. We understand and support the NBAs position in this matter.”The NBA conducted an investigation into the Taylors arrest in East Lansing, Michigan hotel the morning of Sept. 25 following an altercation with a woman with whom he was having a romantic relationship.Taylor and the woman were drinking heavily at a hotel room and a loud argument ensued, prompting guests to call security, the NBA release stated. The argument escalated and Taylor shoved the woman violently into the hallway where she fell to the ground and struck her head on an opposite door leaving a bump.The release also said Taylor slapped her arm, leaving marks, and punched a hole in his hotel room.Taylor was arrested by East Lansing police officers and according to NBA investigation was “belligerent and uncooperative.”Silver said Taylor also must enter an outpatient alcohol treatment program and perform alcohol sensor tests daily for 60 days. After that, he is subject to random testing by the probation department. He must also perform 80 hours of community service.The domestic assault charge will be dismissed if Taylor successfully meets the conditions of his probation. If Taylor fails to meet the conditions of his probation he could be subject to further punishment from the league.The Hornets learned of Taylors suspension before their game against Indiana Wednesday night.When asked if the suspension was too stiff, Hornets backup center Jason Maxiell said, “Its hard to answer that one right now.”Taylors suspension comes at a time when domestic violence has dominated the sports landscape around the country, including Charlotte.Carolina Panthers Pro Bowl defensive end Greg Hardy was convicted in July on two counts of domestic violence. He is appealing, but is not allowed to return until after the trial is completed.Hardy played one game for the Panthers, before a video was released of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiance in a hotel elevator, leading to the league changing out it handled domestic violence situations. Hardy was placed on the exempt-commissioners permission list three weeks into the season and continues to collect his $13.1 million salary from the Panthers.8.03KRelated StoriesNBA star Dwight Howard investigated in Georgia for child abuseSilver: Salary cap in NBA is not un-AmericanNBA aiming to dunk soccers global statusStruggling Lakers past Hawks 114-109Warriors beat Lakers 136-115 despite Kobes 44Lakers finally drop the goose eggLakers beat Hornets 107-92 for 1st win of seasonPhotoPyeongchang Winter Olympics torch relay kicks offTokyo marks 1,000 days until 2020 Olympic GamesFed Express eclipses his old foe Rafa againChinese sprinter Su Bingtian and wife hold wedding ceremony in hometownLi Na tastes local delicacy during WTA Wuhan OpenPlayer party held for 2017 WTA Wuhan OpenMost PopularWhats HotBritish, German soldiers play Christmas truce centenary matchHighlightsJames, Love lead Cavaliers over Hornets 97-88Bryant passes Jordan for 3rd on scoring listSoggy Serie A breakthrough for Mancini as Inter triumphHamilton wins BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2014SpecialLi Na retires from tennis17th Asian GamesUS OpenNanjing Youth Olympics…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer |Copyright 1995 -.
