Cuban fined $100,000 for comments on LeBron
(AP) 53 minutes ago

NEW YORK Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has been fined $100,000 by the NBA for comments made about free-agent-to-be LeBron James that violated the league's anti-tampering rules.

The outspoken billionaire, in an interview this week with CNNMoney.com, said "anybody" would be interested in James. Cuban said it would be tough to sign the two-time defending league MVP in free agency, but a sign-and-trade deal with Cleveland is something he would look at.

Phoenix Suns President of Basketball Operations Steve Kerr has been fined $10,000, also for public comments made in violation of the anti-tampering rules. Kerr's comments were made on a radio show on May 14.

Cuban didn't immediately return an email from The Associated Press.

That's a lot of money! Can we total how much money this guy has lost due to fines from the NBA? I would love to know....

And why did he get fined? You can't talk about the upcoming free agents or am I missing something? seems like you can't say anything at all or have an opinion that differs from the NBA's perspective

Cuban matches every fine dollar for dollar and gives it to a charity.
