Draymond Green Fined 50K For Tampering

The Golden State Warrior forward Draymond Green has been fined $50,000 for tampering because of comments he made about Phoenix Suns guards Devin Booker while serving TNT analyst, the league announced Sunday. 

 

The NBA decided that Green comments during Friday’s Broadcast were tampering despite the praise he gave the Suns for their undefeated start in the NBA bubble at the Walt Disney World Resort, “but get my man out of Phoenix.”

“It’s not good for him. It’s not good for his career,” Green said. “… They gotta get Book out of Phoenix. I need my man to go somewhere where he can play great basketball all the time and win, because he’s that type of player.”

 

TNT’s Ernie Johnson  asked whether he thought his comments were tampering, Green responded, “Maybe.”

 

Booker, 23, is under contract with the Suns through the 2023-24 season. He’s signed a five-year, $158 million extension in July 2018. He leads Phoenix in scoring at 26.4 points per game this season according to ESPN. 

 

The Suns are the only undefeated team in the NBA bubble, going 5-0 since the league restarted play. Phoenix (31-39) is a half-game behind the Portland Trail Blazers (32-39). 

 

According to ESPN’s Bobby Marks The fine amount is the maximum the NBA can give before a player can file a grievance. 

 

The league expanded its rules before this season when it comes to matters such as tampering, salary-cap circumvention and free-agency timing — with one priority being the rule prohibiting player-to-player tampering.

 

Booker has not been to the playoffs with the Suns, who have not made the postseason in 10 years.
