NBA head coaches and general managers hate the off-season for one reason, they have absolutely no control over what their players get up to.

The Denver Nuggets are the latest NBA side to be hurt by the off-season, with one of their players apparently being arrested late last night.

Lawson Arrested

According to a report from TMZ, Ty Lawson was arrested in Los Angeles yesterday for driving under the influence.

According to the report from TMZ, Lawson was pulled over by the cops for speeding and was given a field sobriety test, which he failed before being brought in. 

"TMZ Sports has learned Lawson was pulled over by CHP for speeding on the 101 Freeway early this morning, and officers determined he showed signs of intoxication, so they gave him a field sobriety test," they wrote.

"Didn't go so good for Lawson. He was arrested around 2:30 AM."

Twice This Year

This isn't the first time that Lawson has been in trouble. In fact, it isn't even the first time this year!

Lawson was also arrested for DUI in January after Denver police pulled him over after observing him going 60 mph in a 35 mph zone. He was cited for speeding, DUI and careless driving in that case.

Trading Ty?

Rumors had been circling that the Nuggets were considering trading Lawson thanks to a combination of his off-court problems and the backlog Denver have at the point guard position. The Nuggets already have Jameer Nelson waiting in reserve, while rookie Emmanuel Mudiay is starring in the Summer League after being drafted 7th overall.

Lawson's production flatlined when the Nuggets started to lose and his behavior turned strange, according to Shaun Powell of The Nuggets may well be after a new start and Lawson may be the man to go. 

Lawson tweeted "I wish" to a fan's response about being traded to Dallas in April. Last month he was filmed telling friends "told you, I'm going to Sacramento, bro," after the Nuggets drafted Mudiay.
