DeAndre was recently served a 25-game suspension by the NBA for violating the league’s drug policy, but it appears that Ayton might catch a break.
The only substance DeAndre Ayton tested positive for was a diuretic, a substance that is used to increase urine production. Diuretic’s are often used to mask banned or illegal substances for an upcoming drug test.
However, there were no traces of any other substances that are banned by the NBA. Thus, the NBPA immediately jumped on the situation and are in the midst of putting together an arbitration case to reduce or withdraw the suspension.
