Default No probe from Cavs, Raptors

Quote:
The Cavaliers and Raptors have no plans to push the NBA to investigate the circumstances that led LeBron James and Chris Bosh to join Dwyane Wade in Miami, according to sources.

NBA commissioner David Stern said Sunday that the league would investigate the Heat's signings of James and Bosh if Cleveland or Toronto made a request.

"Whenever a team lodges a tampering charge, it is investigated," Stern told ESPN.com.

Toronto doesn't really mind because they got the Trade Exception and picks.

Dan Gilbert doesn't wanna embarrass himself further

Besides, even if the league investigated and found tampering evidence, what would happen?

Yeah I think the Raptors are happy with the TPE and 2 first rounders. Cavs are probably not happy but will take the TPE and 4 draft picks also.

Found this:

If a team makes a direct agreement with a player that is not reported to the league, the penalties can be even harsher than those described in question number 23. Such a violation is considered by the league to be among the most serious a team can commit. Again, the league will investigate any allegations of wrongdoing. A violation can result in a fine up to $5,000,000, forfeiture of draft picks, voiding the player's contract(s), and/or the suspension for up to one year of any team personnel who were involved. In addition, the player himself can be fined up to $100,000, and prohibited from ever signing with that team.
