    Meh. I’m all for enforcing tampering rules, but in these cases they seem like victimless crimes. Does anyone really care about these particular signings? Doesn’t seem earth shattering.

    Maybe Morey is complaining because he couldn’t get Lowry....

    It was Murry who left Lowry hanging at the alter when he was pursing Carmello "Key to a mufuggin championship" Anthony.

    Good!

    Nix both trades and cancel the signed contracts.
    Take a second from the Bulls and NOP and 2 firsts from the Heat and one first from the Raptors.

    Otherwise it will be blatant double standards, hypocrisy and bias by the NBA.

    Yeah I care.
    After the NBA sabotaged our plans by nixing the Bogdanovic sign and trade and punishing us with a second round then the Heat and the Raps who have already officially announced the S+T must be punished 10 times more.
    In fact the Bucks must put an official complaint as a team to the league office for blatant tampering to force this investigation to be taken seriously.

    What about the Lebron circle-jerk fest in LA? No way that happens without tampering...

    Lol what’s next the NBA is going to start enforcing their flopping protocol? League is a step above WWE, just let it slide as per usual.

    If NBA rescinds these deals the trickle down effects will be big.

    LA is exempt from fair competition, they'll never mess with the sacred cow.

    LOL No love lost between Redick & Griff

    “It’s a little bit for show probably, I guess,” Redick said. “I don’t know. I think you would probably have to ask the guy who’s asking for the investigation. Some teams cleared a ton of cap space to get Kyle, and it didn’t happen. And then Lonzo [Ball] leaving so you have to ask that guy, that guy complaining.”
