Multiple-Game Suspensions Handed Out For Wild Brawl

A wild brawl between the Orlando Magic and Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night has resulted in a number of multigame suspensions from the NBA, led by Mo Bamba's four-game ban.

Bamba and Rivers threw punches sparking the all-out scrap, and they received the most severe punishment. In addition to Bamba's four games, Rivers gets three games without pay. Jalen Suggs of the Magic gets a one-game suspension, while Jaden McDaniels picks up a $20,000 fine.

Rivers and teammates Taurean Prince and McDaniels were ejected along with Bamba and Suggs.

Rivers had missed a corner three in front of the Magic bench, and Bamba, who was on the bench at the time, talked some trash to Rivers as he headed back upcourt. The Wolves veteran guard then stopped to confront them, as the play went on downcourt, and the fists began to fly.

As noted by NBA Insider Keith Smith, Bamba may not be donning an Orlando Magic jersey ever again. 

Bamba is one of the prime backup centers on the trade market, and with the glut of big men on the Magic roster, he is primed to get dealt by this Thursday, before his four-game suspension is done.
