According to the agent for the Los Angeles Sparks’ Riquna Williams, the WNBA is looking for a suspension against Williams after allegations of domestic violence from last year in Florida.
Tamryn Spruill of Swish Appeal originally reported the words of Orlando Castano, Williams’ agent.
Castano believes that the WNBA is looking to suspend Williams by utilizing the Player Conduct and Discipline clause of the WNBA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement. He also believes that this is coming from the NBA’s legal counsel instead of the WNBA.
A report said two men told Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies it took 10 minutes to break up an altercation between Williams and her ex-girlfriend. The incident reportedly happened in December, approximately 4-5 months before the arrest. One of the details mentioned was how Williams is alleged to have grabbed a weapon, pointed it at someone and said “you’ll get all 18.”
High Post Hoops obtained video statements from several people involved in the case and the WNBA said it was following the blueprint from the Brittney Griner-Glory Johnson case for handling the Williams situation.
Castano’s issue with the NBA looking for suspension was how Williams has not admitted to the allegations against her nor has she been convicted.
