Detroit Pistons guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was suspended for two games without pay by the NBA on Friday after pleading guilty to operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.

The 24-year-old US guard, who has played four seasons for the Pistons, was charged in March and last week was sentenced to probation, according to the Detroit Free Press.


The NBA suspension, for the violation of Michigan state law, will begin with the next NBA regular season game for which Caldwell-Pope is healthy and eligible to play.


Set to become a free agent, Caldwell-Pope has averaged 11.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.2 steals a game for his NBA career. He averaged 13.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and a career-best 2.5 assists last season.

The Pistons went 37-45 last season, their eighth losing campaign in nine seasons. They have not won a playoff game since 2008.
