NBA: Nuggets G Ty Lawson Arrested For Domestic Violence

Denver Nuggets guard Ty Lawson was arrested and charged with domestic violence

According to Denver's ABC 7 News, the alleged domestic violence incident took place last Saturday in Arapahoe County. The report states "The 25-year-old Lawson was arrested by sheriff's deputies on investigation of harrassment that includes either striking, shoving or kicking as well as property damage, court records state. Both charges are misdemeanors. The incident requres a mandatory restraining order." 

This apparently isn't Lawson's first brush with the law. 

He was also arrested on January 29 for flight to avoid prosecution on a misdemeanor case. In April 2012, he was cited in the same county for reckless driving, driving with a license under restraint and permitting an unauthorized person to drive. 

Lawson was released on a $1,000 bond for his latest misdemeanors, per the Denver Post's Ryan Parker. 

This latest development is just part of a string of misfortunes that have hit the franchise, per USA Today Sports' Jason McIntyre. Danilo Gallinari was injured in April and then the Nuggets were eliminated by the Golden State Warriors in the playoffs' first-round series. 

McIntyre also adds the departures of GM Masai Uriji, head coach George Karl and forward Andre Iguodala which may affect Denver's long-term future. 

Lawson is entering his fifth NBA season, He averaged a career-high 16.7 points to go along with 2.7 rebounds and 6.9 assists in 73 games in 2012-13, per ESPN.

Phoenix Suns Hold All the Leverage over Eric Bledsoe's Free Agency

Jul 19 2014 5:52pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

A maximum contract offer isn't coming for Eric Bledsoe. The explosive but oft-injured point guard might think he's worth it, but the Phoenix Suns have no reason to pay that price. They are the only ones present at Bledsoe's restricted free-agency auction, and oh by the way, they have the power to match any offer he receives should another bidder surface unexpectedly. Phoenix has complete control of th ...
