NBA Player OJ Mayo Hit with 2-Year Suspension #mayo, oj, ejection, ref, incident, #huntington, high, school, basketball, #capital, nba, suspend, O.J. Mayo, who averaged a career-low 7.8 points for the Bucks during the 2015-16 NBA season before reportedly sustaining a season-ending injury off the court, has been "dismissed and disqualified" from the NBA after violating the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program. The league released a brief statement on Friday afternoon about Mayo’s dismissal from the league but could not provide many details with regards to his specific violation. Here is the press release the NBA put out: The NBA announced today that free agent O.J. Mayo has been dismissed and disqualified from the league for violating the terms of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program. Under the Anti-Drug Program, Mayo is eligible to apply for reinstatement in two years. The NBA, NBA teams, and the Players Association are prohibited from publicly disclosing information regarding the testing or treatment of any NBA player under the Anti-Drug Program, other than to announce a player’s suspension or dismissal from the league. As the statement said, the 28-year-old, who was set to become a free agent this summer, will be eligible to apply for reinstatement back into the NBA in two years. This is not the first time the NBA has reprimanded Mayo for violating their Anti-Drug Program. Back in 2011, Mayo, then with the Grizzlies, received a 10-game suspension after he tested positive for a banned substance. At the time, he told reporters that he believed the positive test was the result of an "energy drink" he had consumed. "I didn’t know it had any bad substances in it," he said, "and it caused a 10-game suspension. It’s not like I went to a GNC and got some Muscle Armor or ordered some supplement off the internet or something. It was just a local gas station that kind of got me hemmed up."
