Nets GM Sean Marks suspended, fined for entering referee locker room postgame

Nets, Sean Marks

The NBA has suspended Brooklyn Nets general manager Sean Marks for one game and issued a $25,000 fine for entering referees locker room after the Game 4 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday.

Via Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints:

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Sunday that Marks and the Nets were “livid” over belief that Joel Embiid’s flagrant 1 fouls in Games 2/4 should’ve been deemed a 2.

The plays in which Marks was referring to were Embiid’s vicious elbow on Jarrett Allen in Game 2, and another hard foul on Allen Saturday, which led to some scuffling between mostly Jared Dudley and Jimmy Butler, who were both ejected, as a result.

It appears that the scoffing presented by the two Sixers stars Embiid and Ben Simmons last week, has clearly triggered a chain of events which seems to have made this series go from monotonous to one of the most mind-blowing. And that’s not even crediting how exciting each game has been on the court.

The referees appear to have the Nets fuming – both in the locker room and the members of the front office.

“I’ve been fed up [with the refs] since last season,” said Spencer Dinwiddie, per Brian Lewis of The New York Post.

The Brooklyn Nets head back to Philly for Tuesday’s Game 5 matchup down 3-1 against the Philadelphia 76ers, where Marks will not be present.
