Marc Lasry has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for comments he made on Anthony Davis.

Lasry is one of the co-owners of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Davis listed the Bucks as one of the teams he would have interest in signing with long-term.

"I saw that report, and I think it's great," Lasry told Sporting News. "It's a little bit of what we want. We want players to come and play in Milwaukee. And part of it is, when you're winning and you're setting a standard for excellence, people see that. People want to win."

He continued: "We hope it would be players like Anthony Davis and others who want to come to Milwaukee."

Jan 29, 2019 6:33 PM

Anthony Davis has been fined $50,000 by the NBA after his agent Rich Paul publicly demanded a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans.

The league's collective bargaining agreement prevents players or their agents from publicly demanding trades.

Paul told Adrian Wojnarowski on Monday that Davis "wants to be traded to a team that allows him a chance to win consistently and compete for a championship."

The NBA said that Paul's comments were "an intentional effort to undermine the contractual relationship between Davis and the Pelicans."
