    Clippers fined 250k for violating anti-circumvention with DeAndre Jordan

    Biggest fine in a while.

    NBA Fines Clippers $250 K for violating NBA rules. From the release:

    The NBA announced today that it has fined the Los Angeles Clippers $250,000 for violating NBA rules prohibiting teams from offering players unauthorized business or investment opportunities.

    The violation involved a presentation made by the Clippers to free agent DeAndre Jordan on July 2 that improperly included a potential third-party endorsement opportunity for the player. While the NBA’s investigation ultimately concluded that the presentation of this opportunity had no impact on Jordan’s decision to re-sign with the Clippers, the team’s conduct nevertheless violated the league’s anti-circumvention rules.

    The NBA’s anti-circumvention rules prohibit teams from, among other things, providing or arranging for others to provide any form of compensation to a player unless such compensation is included in a player contract or otherwise expressly permitted under the CBA.




    Edit: Interesting thing is this is for the July 2nd meeting that made him choose the Mavs, NOT from the second one where they "kidnapped" him.

    they weren't fined for anything they did on "kidnapping day". what they did that day was 100% fine. he was still an unrestricted free agent and thus allowed to meet with anyone.

    Right, I guess just thinking about the whole situation, (i understand the rules and what not) it's just funny to me that they were fined for a presentation but that drama filled day in Jordan's house and keeping Cuban away was all good. Again, I know he was 100% unrestricted at that point, but just looking at it from that perspective is kinda funny.
