NBA player fined for touching a referee | Basketball


NEW YORK- The National Basketball Association (NBA) fined the base player this Friday (point guard) of the , He brings Young for the sum of $ 15,000, for touching a referee.

The star guard was punished for his actions with 6:41 left to play in the second quarter of Atlanta’s 112-111 loss to Washington.

Young carried the ball down the left side and was hit by Brazilian Raúl Neto. His momentum carried him toward the baseline after missing a shot, but he was not fouled on the play.

As he ran back onto the court, Young made contact with his arm against Officer Ben Taylor, who signaled a technical foul.

Young is one of the players who was expected to lose some foul claims that were previously flagged, after the NBA emphasized this season on the need to cut down on defenders when the offensive player initiates contact. .
