Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski got some feedback from league executives about the length of Rajon Rondo’s likely suspension:
Before the league hands down its suspension, Rivers has to be careful how harshly he publicly judges his point guard. He doesn’t want to make the league case for a significant suspension easier.
The consensus of NBA executives on Thursday morning was a two- or three-game suspension for Rondo. “I think the internal argument will be to make it three, because it spilled into the stands,” one longtime GM said Thursday morning.
I predicted a 2-3 game suspension in the Morning Dump.
As always, we’ll keep you updated.
