Orlando Magic rookie Mo Bamba was benched on Monday night time for a violation of crew guidelines that he later defined.
Bamba, the No. 6 total choose within the draft, didn’t play in a Magic recreation for the primary time all season. Orlando misplaced 101-76 to the Dallas Mavericks.
Magic head coach Steve Clifford mentioned Bamba was benched for a violation, whereas Bamba mentioned that he has to “be on time,” suggesting he was benched for tardiness.
“Simply bought to be on time,” Mo Bamba mentioned when requested about his violation of crew guidelines. “Yeah, it’s only a dangerous on my half. I should be higher.” https://t.co/Edt7nPkPCN
