  • NBA Rules Magic Johnson Didn't Commit Tampering On Ben Simmons

The NBA announced on Monday that it was conducting an investigation into potential tampering between the Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons.

League spokesman Mike Bass said Monday that the National Basketball Association will look at the matter.

Earlier, Magic Johnson had told the media about Simmons' approach and how the duo could meet in the summer, if all the stakeholders involved agreed to it. "After receiving the email request from the 76ers, Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka contacted 76ers General Manager Elton Brand and informed him that Magic could only do so if the 76ers gave him pre-written approval".

"No issue", Brand said.

"In the interview with 97.5 The Fanatic on Monday morning, Brand said, "[Lakers GM] Rob Pelinka called me and said that Ben [Simmons] wanted to talk to Hall of Famers after the season, Magic was on the list. "This was over a month ago".

Magic Johnson were probably using this "big guard" meeting as a means to get Simmons to talk about his future. The Lakers also confirmed that Pelinka reached out to Brand.

"That was the end of the matter", the Lakers said in a statement.

The NBA is set to assess whether the Los Angeles Lakers made illegal contact with Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons.

Brand told the station that he may be willing to permit the meeting if he was present.

While the National Basketball Association concluded on Tuesday that the Lakers did nothing wrong, Simmons was out here joking about the entire thing ahead of his team's game against Boston. A year later the team was hit with a $50,000 fine for comments regarding Bucks' star Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Lakers had been fined $500,000 in 2017 for violating anti-tampering rules in their dealing with Paul George and his agent.

Magic Johnson's statement about Ben Simmons maybe coming to LA in the summer in order to have a "big guard" conversation with him has caused quite the stir within the National Basketball Association fraternity. "I love his vision", Johnson said Sunday. And look at him now. "The East better watch out".

Brand didn't sound anxious that Simmons has any desire to change teams soon.
