Detroit Pistons C Willie Reed suspended for domestic violence

Detroit Pistons C Willie Reed suspended for domestic violence

The NBA announced on Tuesday that it has suspended the veteran six games for his alleged role in a "domestic violence incident involving his wife". His wife, however, didn't want to press charges and since the arrest, he has entered counseling and a pretrial diversion program to resolve the criminal charges and avoid jail time.

The National Basketball Players Association called the punishment "excessive and inappropriate", adding it was filing a grievance and seeking an expedited hearing to get back on the court quickly.

Willie Reed answers questions from reporters on January 31 at the Palace.

The NBA conducted its own investigation. The NBA stated that the suspension is "based on all facts and circumstances of this matter".

Less than two weeks after being acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers in the Blake Griffin trade, Detroit Pistons center Willie Reed is facing a major off-court situation. Reed's suspension is without pay and begins immediately with Wednesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets; the next game he'll be eligible to play will be February 25 at Charlotte, after the NBA All-Star break. The Pistons also received seldom-used forward Brice Johnson in the deal.
