Kings' Nocioni suspended for drink-driving

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Sacramento Kings forward Andres Nocioni has been suspended for two games after pleading no contest to drink-driving, the NBA said Tuesday.

The suspension of Argentine Nocioni, in his sixth season in the NBA, will begin with Tuesday night's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

He is averaging 8.6 points and 2.9 rebounds a game this season for the Kings, who are 29-39 and have the third-worst record in the Western Conference.
