NBA Rumors: Dallas Mavericks suspend PA announcer over controversial tweets

The Dallas Mavericks have suspended their public address announcer after he tweeted out some controversial things that the NBA was none too tickled about. According to ESPNDallas.com’s Tim McMahon, the Mavericks have told PA Sean Heath that he will be serving a two-game suspension after he tweeted out allegations that NBA games are rigged by the league.

Per ESPN.com:

 The NBA issued a two-game suspension to Dallas Mavericks public-address announcer Sean Heath due to tweets criticizing officiating, multiple sources briefed on the situation told ESPNDallas.com.

The suspension will begin Saturday night, when the Mavs face the Phoenix Suns in the final home game of the regular season.

With there being just one Mavericks home game left on the schedule this year, McMahon reports that Heath will serve the remainder of his suspension either in the first playoff game of the postseason — assuming the Mavericks even make the playoffs — or the home opener of the 2014-15 season.

This isn’t the first time that someone connected to the team in this capacity has been punished and it likely won’t be the last. However you’d better believe that Sean Heath will never again do anything that could see him suspended for a second time.
