Stephen Jackson of the Golden State Warriors has been fined $25,000 for public statements detrimental to the NBA. The statements were made on August 28 and concerned Jackson’s desire to be traded to a team other than the Warriors.
Players are not permitted to make trade requests publicly. Ron Artest, then of the Indiana Pacers, was fined during the 2005-06 season for requesting a trade through the media.
