Thunder F McGary gets another drug suspension

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma City Thunder forward Mitch McGary has been suspended without pay for at least 10 games for violating the terms of the league's anti-drug policy.

The league announced Tuesday that the suspension will commence when he has finished serving a five-game drug suspension that was announced in July. After the previous suspension, McGary said in a statement that he needed to ''take accountability & ensure that this does not happen again.''

McGary played just eight games his sophomore season at Michigan after electing to have back surgery, then tested positive for marijuana & faced a suspension, prompting him to enter the 2014 draft. The Thunder took him in the first round, & general manager Sam Presti said he was not worried approximately McGary's past.
