Ja Morant Suspended Again for Possible Gun Video

Morant was suspended by the Memphis Grizzlies after displaying a gun on Instagram Live in March.

Memphis Grizzlies forward Ja Morant, 23, has drawn the attention of the NBA once again after casually flashing a gun-like device on Instagram Live over the weekend.

The Saturday video follows the NBA's punishment of Morant two months ago for displaying a gun in a live Instagram video at a Denver nightclub. He apologized, saying the firearm was not his and that he would do better in the future.

The N.B.A. claimed Morant was "intoxicated" in an Instagram Live video posted early on March 4. Morant entered a Florida counseling center.  

He just ended his fourth season with the Grizzlies after being selected second overall in the 2019 draft. Despite crucial injuries, he guided a youthful Memphis squad that was one of the best in the Western Conference.

Morant retweeted a tweet from a Grizzlies beat writer that suggested his off-court behavior may have contributed to his failure to make one of the three All-NBA teams last week.

Morant received a five-year contract extension last summer that included $38 million if he made the All-NBA team this year.

According to The Associated Press, Morant filed a countersuit against Holloway in April, accusing him of ruining his reputation and losing him millions of dollars.
