The NBA announced today that San Antonio Spurs guard Devonte’ Graham has been suspended for two games without pay for pleading guilty to a charge of impaired driving, in violation of the law of the State of North Carolina.
Graham was arrested in July of 2022 for impaired driving, and he recently pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DWI charge, according to TMZ.
According to the police report, the 28-year-old was driving 63 MPH in a 40 MPH zone. However, the speeding charge was dropped as part of the plea deal. When Graham was pulled over, his breath test showed a blood alcohol concentration of .11.
In February, the New Orleans Pelicans traded Graham and four second-round picks to San Antonio for Josh Richardson. In 20 games with the Spurs last season, Graham averaged 13.0 points, 4.0 assists, 2.7 threes and 2.5 rebounds per game.
"Graham’s suspension will commence with the next NBA regular season game that he is eligible and able to play," the NBA's statement added.
