Arnett Moultrie has just added to the wows of the Philadelphia 76ers, if that were even possible.
After finally bringing to an end their record-equalling 26 defeat run on Saturday, it was revealed today by the NBA's Public Relations Twitter account that the Sixers have lost Arnett Moultrie for five games after he violated the NBA's drugs policy:
"76ers Arnett Moultrie has been suspended without pay for 5 games for violating the terms of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program," the league posted to the social media site.
As yet there is no official word as to what Moultire is accused of taking, but NBC Sports' Kurt Klein is reporting that the suspension is marijuana related.
Moultrie is far from a regular for the Sixers, even with their recent troubles, but it is more the off-field implications and negative media reports that are more concerning for the Philadelphia franchise.
The 27th overall pick in the 2012 Draft has scored just three points for the team this season, spending time with their D-League affiliate Delaware recently.
The franchise is yet to comment on the situation.
