The Warriors suspended Jordan Bell for win over the Grizzlies yesterday.


Anthony Slater and Sam Amick of The Athletic:

At​ some​ point on Tuesday​ night, Jordan Bell made​ a purchase at the​ Warriors’ team​ hotel here.​ The​ exact​​ item or items and amount of the bill is unclear. What isn’t, though, is who got unknowingly charged for it: assistant coach Mike Brown.

That, league sources say, was the reason for his team-issued one-game suspension

There was concern, sources say, that this wasn’t the first time Bell has pulled this maneuver on some unknowing member of the organization.

Was this a prank? A scam? A prank could be chalked up to immaturity and more easily forgiven. A scam could rip at the fabric of trust a team relies upon.

There’s obviously a huge difference in how quickly everyone will move on.

Another potential juicy question: What did Bell buy?
