Mayo also served a 10-game suspension back in 2011 for the use of performance-enhancing drugs.
It is not clear as to what the specifics are that led to Mayo’s dismissal. The NBA and Players Association, along with its teams are prohibited from disclosing information regarding the testing or treatment of any NBA player, other than to announce disciplinary action.
In the NBA CBA, it says, “If a player tests positive for a drug of abuse, he will be dismissed and disqualified from the NBA.”
