Things aren’t really going too well for Grizzlies star Ja Morant.
The season is over for him and the Grizzlies but he was recently caught on IG live waiving around a gun a couple of months after his gun incident inside of a Colorado strip club.
There have been lots of takes on what should happen to him but as of now, he has been suspended from all team activities and facilities until further notice and there are reports that say he will be facing a substantial suspension for the start of next season that could really impact the Grizzlies.
Now, agents are speaking out on how they aren’t happy with him according to ESPN’s Tim MacMahon.
“I’m curious what stance [the players association] might take, I’ve talked to agents of other superstar players and they’re pissed off too,” MacMahon said (h/t NBA on Reddit). “Because this is not just a bad look for Ja Morant. This is not just a bad look for the Memphis Grizzlies. This reflects poorly on the entire league.
“I’m talking to an agent of another superstar and he’s like ‘Man, this really taints the image of the whole league. I’ve got my clients who are doing everything right, who are never sniffing any kind of trouble. Positive members of their community. So on and so forth, but then the perception is going to be ‘Look at this fool who thinks playing with guns on Instagram Live is cool.”
The NBA has all of the offseason to come up with a punishment so it could be a while before we know what happens.
