Phil Jackson Fined By NBA For Comment On D'Angelo Russell

Mar 4, 2015 10:31 AM

Phil Jackson has been fined by the NBA for his public comment on D'Angelo Russell of Ohio State.

It is immediately unclear how much money the Knicks were fined.

Upon leaving Ohio State's game on Thursday night in Columbus, Jackson told Cleveland.com that Russell was a "great looking kid, [a] great prospect."

 

League officials are not allowed to make public comments on college underclassmen.

Around the NBA, front-office executives were surprised Jackson would violate the rule, given that it is a well-known rule that his peers understand has to be observed. 

 

The NBA fined Phil Jackson $25,000 for tampering with Derek Fisher when he was still a player with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
