NBRA Comments on Aggression Towards D League Official

The NBRA released a statement concerning the floor altercation culminating in Rio Grande Valley player Montrezl Harrell forcefully shoving Referee Jason Goldenberg to the ground during a game with Bakersfield on March 26, 2016.

“After carefully reviewing videotape and related evidence concerning this incident, we have reached the inescapable conclusion that Harrell committed a deliberate assault and battery against Referee Goldenberg. Anything less than a multiple game suspension would constitute a green light for violence against officials,” said Lee Seham, NBRA general counsel.
