NBA spokesman says the 100k fine per game for sitting Davis is fake news
quote:

NBA spokesman Mike Bass tells @NYTSports on the Pelicans and Anthony Davis: “The NBA did not tell New Orleans that it would be fined $100,000 per game if Anthony Davis were held out for the remainder of season ... (QUOTE CONTINUED IN NEXT TWEET)


quote:

More from the NBA’s Mike Bass on New Orleans and Anthony Davis: ”The Pelicans were advised that the team had not identified a proper basis for making that determination at this time and league rules governing competitive integrity therefore require that he be permitted to play.”

I am sure we were never officially told. Was probably floated around as a hypothetical

Very careful words there.

They didn't say they WOULD, just that they COULD.

Also they didn't say they would be fined 100k per game. They said a MINIMUM of 100k per game, so it would likely be more.

Word games.

If I were them I would have just dropped the issue.

The team would have eaten a fine if that’s what it was.

Threats to seize our draft picks are another matter.

Could be true, could not be true. I dont trust our front office to handle anything correctly.

Their exact words were..."If they (Rich Paul and AD) file the grievance, we will have to let him play." It was then strongly encouraged to let him play through the AS break and then things will be reevaluated

NBA trying to get out in front of this before Silver gets blasted with these questions. It's all a spin game
