Draymond Green talking Devin Booker on @NBAonTNT: “Get my man out of Phoenix. It’s not good for him, it’s not good for his career. I need my man to go somewhere he can play great basketball all the time, and win.”Ernie Johnson: “Are you tampering?’Draymond: “Maybe” pic.twitter.com/vTUn4pK3iq— Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) August 7, 2020From the NBA:”The NBA announced today that it has fined Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors $50,000 for violating the league’s anti-tampering rule. The fine is in response to statements Green made as an analyst on TNT on August 7 regarding the Phoenix Suns’ Devin Booker. As announced prior to the start of the 2019-20 season, the NBA has adopted a stricter enforcement approach for conduct relating to tampering, salary cap circumvention, and free agency timing rules, including with respect to the rule prohibiting player-to-player tampering.”MORE: How to become a virtual fan, land on video board during 2020 NBA restartGreen started by praising Booker and the Suns for their undefeated start in the NBA bubble but later added, “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.”Green was asked by TNT’s Ernie Johnson whether he thought his comments were tampering, and Green responded, “Maybe.” The NBA was not happy with Warriors forward Draymond Green for suggesting Suns guard Devin Booker should request a trade out of Phoenix.The league on Sunday fined Green $50,000 for tampering after the comments he made Friday as a guest analyst on TNT’s “Inside the NBA.” The NBA said his remarks violated the league’s anti-tampering rule.
