Lakers fined $500,000 for contact with George’s agent

The Associated Press - September 1, 2017 10:28 am

NEW YORK (AP) – New Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka’s contact with Paul George’s agent violated the NBA’s anti-tampering rule and has resulted in Los Angeles being fined $500,000.

The league says that a law firm’s independent investigation didn’t find evidence of an agreement or an understanding that the Lakers would sign or acquire George, who was with the Indiana Pacers at the time.

George was later traded to Oklahoma City.
