08:50 AM ET 07.03 | If the Nets are caught talking to Deron Williams, his agent or Williams' family during the lockout about his contract situation and future as a Net, they're going to be subject to major fines and the loss of draft picks. That also pertains to all other teams, all of whom were required by the league to go over the do's and don't's of the lockout during league-wide meetings that were held around draft time. The league says it will fine times a minimum of $1 million for talking to "the other side."

NBA really has become a joke! Owners mess up with bad management ...

They messed up by giving too much $$ to the top players. Look at the list of top wage earners in sports. NBA has more than any other. The money is just ridiculous.

Both players and owners are doing a disservice to the league. They are BOTH making themselves look bad. Players need to just shut up and give a no comment. Owners need to just shut up and give a no comment.
