NEW YORK (AP) — Austin “Boo Painter” Painter, who led the NBA 2K League in scoring in its inaugural season, has been kicked out of the esports league for violating the player code of conduct.

The league announced Monday that Painter had been dismissed and disqualified from the league. It did not disclose the violation.

Painter left a State Department job to play in the league and was drafted in the second round by Wizards District Gaming. He went on to average 32.3 points.
