Commissioner Adam Silver Warns All 30 Teams of NBA Tampering Rules
The Anthony Davis rumour carousel has brought up concern from NBA executives and even the commissioner himself.
In a memo sent out to all 30 teams to start the weekend, Adam Silver reminded everyone of tampering rules and yes, that tampering is still a thing to keep in mind. The memo itself was aimed to essentially “serve as a reminder of the league’s anti-tampering rule.”
The memo read: “This principle is particularly important in today’s media environment, where any actions or comments relating to potential player movement receive immediate and widespread public attention. Teams should be entitled to focus their efforts on the competition this season with the players they have under contract, without having to divert attention or resources to conduct or speculation regarding the potential destinations of those players in future seasons once their contracts expire.”
Essentially, Silver and the NBA want the entire league to leave the New Orleans Pelicans star alone.
