The NBA suspended former San Antonio Spurs guard Joshua Primo for four games without pay for conduct detrimental to the league

Former San Antonio Spurs point guard Joshua Primo has been suspended for four games by the NBA over allegations that he exposed himself to the team’s former sports psychologist on multiple occasions.

The 20-year-old has not played in the NBA since his contract was terminated in October 2022 following the claim, and while the matter led to a court visit, the complaint was settled elsewhere.

Then on Friday, the NBA announced they had conducted their own investigation into the allegations against the former lottery pick, concluding he engaged in “inappropriate behaviour” which was “detrimental to the league”.

In an official statement, the league said:
“Following that process, the league found that Primo engaged in inappropriate and offensive behaviour by exposing himself to women.

“Primo maintains that his conduct was not intentional, and the league did not find evidence that he engaged in any sexual or other misconduct apart from these brief exposures. “However, this behavior is not consistent with tournament standards and disciplinary requirements.”

According to ESPN sources, Primo was the 12th overall pick in the 2021 draft and is currently in talks to join the Los Angeles Clippers.

The organization was comfortable giving him this opportunity after he was evaluated by the experts who advised the team.
