Coaches off the hook for Arena scuffle

After 10 days of investigation the NBL has determined that no individuals are responsible for a post-game on-court scuffle between Perth Wildcats and Adelaide 36ers coaches and players on February 14.

But the clubs have each been fined $5000 although the penalties have been suspended for 12 months.

At a hearing today Adelaide coach Joey Wright was found not guilty of striking. So, too, was Perth assistant coach Adam Tatalovich, who was also found not to have to answer a case of using bad language.

A charge against Wildcats import James Ennis was withdrawn last weekend.

So in essence, the NBL hasn't been able to point the finger at anyone for the fiery exchange.
