Bucks co-owner hit with tampering fine over Anthony Davis comments

Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry has been hit with a fine for tampering over some comments regarding New Orleans Pelicans center Anthony Davis.

Lasry landed in hot water after responding positively to a report that the Bucks were one of the teams that Davis would consider signing with long-term if traded there in an interview last week.

“I saw that report, and I think it’s great,” Lasry told Mitch Lawrence of Sporting News. “It’s a little bit of what we want. We want players to come and play in Milwaukee. … The whole goal is winning. So we hope it would be players like Anthony Davis and others who want to come to Milwaukee.”

That was enough to breach league tampering rules, as Lasry was hit with a $25,000 fine.

A lot of people have had to tread carefully when discussing Davis publicly. Lasry went too far and will have to pay for it, even if his comments were pretty innocuous and clearly came after simply being asked about the report.
