I wouldn't consider them unlucky. They're running a business and they're insinuating that once they "solidify their signings there will be no tickets left" so buy now! They should be fined for misleading their fans and tampering, as they're just fooling themselves if they think that they can sign either player.

They should know the rules anyways, fine em.

That's because the only time the Hawks get 5000 fans, is on 1 dollar beer night.

Technically though, they can argue that it isn't tampering. The definition of free agent tampering in the NBA is basically that no member of management can directly contact a free agent before July 1st. As a result, you have the media do your dirty work until the end of June.

With this situation, nobody actually contacted CP or DH and the marketing people aren't really a part of the front office.

I say fine them, make them change the marketing pitch from actually naming players to just saying free agents in general or even change the rules regarding what is considered tampering. But I doubt they go nuclear and start taking away draft picks and what not.
