The Golden State Warriors announced Wednesday that they would be suspending center Jordan Bell for one game citing “conduct detrimental to the team.” Specific details about Bell’s conduct were kept under wraps until The Athletic discovered he was suspended after making an in-room purchase to Assistant Coach Mike Brown.
Staff from The Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee, contacted Brown after several charges were made to his room. After he alerted the team, the Warriors investigated the charges and discovered Bell was responsible.
This isn’t the first time the Warriors center has been accused of fraudulently charging a bill to someone else, the sports site reports.
Head Coach Steve Kerr refused to provide details during a news conference about Bell’s suspension.
Details about the purchase have not been released and the team fined Bell $9,505.
The team’s silence and the huge fine have fueled online speculation about what the 24-year-old could have ordered.
