Pistons' Willie Reed suspended six games over domestic violence incident

Pistons' Willie Reed suspended six games over domestic violence incident”

The NBA announced on Tuesday that it has suspended the veteran six games for his alleged role in a "domestic violence incident involving his wife".

Reed was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery after an argument with his wife, Jasmine Reed, at their Miami residence on August 5. "I did not call the police and I did not ask anyone to call the police on my behalf".

It's not yet known whether this will impact Reed's future with the Pistons. "I have no intention of pressing charges and I have asked the authorities to immediately dismiss charges against Willie".

Per NBA.com, Reed entered into a pretrial diversion program in October to resolve the charge against him.

According to ESPN Insider Bobby Marks, the new collective bargaining agreement has a strong domestic violence, child abuse, and sexual assault policy - one which would allow commissioner Adam Silver to hand down a suspension if an act has occurred.

Reed has since played in three games for Detroit and played a combined nine minutes. Reed's suspension is without pay and begins immediately with Wednesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets; the next game he'll be eligible to play will be February 25 at Charlotte, after the NBA All-Star break. In 39 games with the Clippers this season, the center averaged 4.9 points and 3.1 rebounds.
