NEW YORK (AP) - Javaris Crittenton won't contest his NBA suspension for bringing a gun into the Wizards' locker room.
Players' association executive director Billy Hunter said in a statement Tuesday that Crittenton "believes far more good will be done by moving forward and focusing on the future."
Last Wednesday, commissioner David Stern suspended Crittenton and fellow Washington guard Gilbert Arenas without pay for the rest of the season. Arenas had already asked the union not to contest the penalty.
Crittenton pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge Jan. 25.
Both players admitted bringing a gun into the locker room after a dispute stemming from a card game on a team flight, violating a provision added to the collective bargaining agreement in 2005.
