Oklahoma City Thunder forward Mitch McGary has been suspended without pay for at least 10 games for violating the terms of the NBA's anti-drug policy. The league says the suspension will begin when he has finished serving a five-game drug suspension that was announced in July.

CBSSports.com reports that  the violation isn't believed to be another positive test, but rather a failure to live up to procedural guidelines set forth in the program,

After the previous suspension, McGary the former Michigan Wolverine, said in a statement, “I clearly made a mistake, and for that, I apologize to the organization, my teammates, and our fans. I realize there are only so many opportunities given to you and I need to make sure that, as a person and as a player, I take accountability and ensure that this does not happen again.”

Sources say the Thunder would like to unload McGary because of his inability to maintain a lifestyle that'll allow him to play in the NBA.

Positive tests have trailed McGary, who failed a drug test at the University of Michigan that would’ve cost him his junior season had he not entered the 2014 NBA draft.


Injuries have limited his career both in college and in the pros.
