The National Basketball Association issued a fine to the Los Angeles Lakers for violating the NBA's anti-tampering rule after general manager Rob Pelinka was found to have had contact with Paul George's agent after the team had already been warned.

The fine was $500,000.00 as a penalty for anti-tampering rule.

Lakers' president of basketball operations Magic Johnson took full responsibility for the teams tampering fine and said he told owner Jeanie Buss to take the money out of his paycheck.

"I apologize to Jeanie, and that was the main thing. I told her she could take it out of my salary because I don't want the Lakers to be paying that fine. I don't want her spending $500,000, because she didn't do anything. That's on me." Johnson said..
