Magic Johnson takes full responsibility for Lakers' $500K tampering fine

Magic Johnson takes full responsibility for Lakers' $500K tampering fine”

Magic Johnson understands that he is one of the main reasons the Los Angeles Lakers were recently fined $500,000 for tampering with Paul George, and the executive says he has offered to pay the fine himself. I told her she could take it out of my salary because I don't want the Lakers to be paying that fine.

Los Angeles Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka and the team's outside counsel, Adam Streisand of Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP, have issued the following statements regarding the NBA's tampering investigation: Rob Pelinka: "We respect and accept the NBA's decision regarding this matter". I don't want her spending $500,000, because she didn't do anything.

Most experts feel the Pacers gave away George due to the predicament they were in, ultimately settling for that package as the time crunch became a lot to handle with the NBA Draft nearing.

The NBA hired an independent firm to investigate tampering charges brought by the Indiana Pacers. The league noted it previously warned the Lakers about the situation after Johnson made a joke about George during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in April.

"This is just on a late-night show being amusing", he said. We made a mistake.

Indiana Pacers owner Herb Simon said he is not considering legal action after the National Basketball Association fined the Lakers $500,000 for tampering with former Pacers star Paul George, who was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder earlier this summer.

"The investigation did not reveal evidence of an agreement or understanding that the Lakers would sign or acquire Mr. George", the league said. The main thing is we're going to move forward. "I'm gonna make sure it doesn't happen anymore". This is the one thing that went bad. Adam (Silver, NBA commissioner) is a great friend of mine.
