The NBA initiated its investigations on potential tampering conducted this offseason by the Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks as it was not based on a complaint from a team.

"The statuses of those investigations are ongoing. Hopefully they’ll be wrapped up in the next few weeks," said Adam Silver.

"I think what prompted them was sort of just the tick-tock chronology around sort of when signings are permissible and the announcements of those signings and the information that came out about them, which was cause for the league office to investigate."

Last year, the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls were each forced to forfeit a second round pick due to tampering charges.
