The Philadelphia 76ers announced Wednesday night that they have suspended third-overall pick Jahlil Okafor for two games.
The move comes after a video surfaced on Wednesday of Okafor fighting a fan in Boston last week.
It was the second such incident Okafor got into while in Boston.
It also comes after a string of troubling behavior over the past month. After news of Okafor’s first fight in Boston broke, another report said Okafor had gotten into a heated disagreement at a club and had a gun pulled on him. He also was recently pulled over for driving 108 miles per hour over the Ben Franklin Bridge in Philadelphia.
A report earlier this week said Okafor was going to be accompanied by a security guard from now on to avoid these situations.
Okafor is 19, and while he’s had some off-court issues, he’s been productive on the court, averaging 17 points and 8 rebounds per game for the 1-19 76ers.
