Former NBA player Marcus Williams has been banned from playing in China for six months after testing positive for marijuana, in what is said to be the first drugs case in the country's professional basketball league. The ex-San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers player, who is with Shanxi Zhongyu Brave Dragons, was banned by the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) on Monday after testing positive on December 9, state-run media said. Xinhua news agency said it was the first drugs case in the CBA league's 17-year history. "To all the CBA fans, Shanxi fans, sponsors, as well as my coaches and players, I sincerely apologise. I have let a lot of people down and I regret it," Williams, 26, said on his microblog on Sina Weibo, China's version of Twitter. SBS
A huge disappointment in the NBA, Connecticut’s Marcus Williams is headed across the pond.
