Lakers get fined 500K. Apparently it was Pelinka who fucked up by making a call to Paul George's agent. Interesting because he's also Randle and Russell's agent so a call to the guy shouldn't be something out of the ordinary. I'm guessing they found text messages or something of the sort that involved PG. Either way, rookie move by Pelinka. Of you're going to tamper, must leave no paper trail.

now the owner of the Pacers is considering civil action because he's a little bitch

The Los Angeles Lakers escaped the NBA’s tampering investigation with the most expensive slap on the wrist in NBA history, but their ability ability to sign former Indiana Pacers and current Oklahoma City Thunder star Paul George in free agency next summer remains intact.
It sounds like that punishment isn’t good enough for Pacers owner and now-confirmed member of #TeamPetty, Herb Simon, who NBA insider Peter Vescey of Patreon reports is considering separate legal action against the Lakers.
“He’s so fed up, don’t be shocked if he sues the league and the Lakers for damages,” said one source Vescey described as “a confidant of the Pacers’ long-time owner.”
If Simon does sue the league and/or the Lakers, it sounds like it most likely won’t get very far. The NBA’s own set of rules make it fairly difficult (if not impossible) for its members to pursue litigation against each other or the league, as Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report astutely noted on Twitter:

Seriously, fuck the Pacers ownership. Whiny bitches. The Lakers were fined for contacting PGs agent? How the fuck does that work if he happens to also be Randle and Russells agent? They found ZERO evidence of a PG agreement in place and the league likely fined the Lakers just to keep these whiny ass small market owners from crying foul. The Lakers have playing by the fucking rules for years with Kupchak there and now that they finally start using the same tactics the rest of the league have been using, they want to cry foul. Fuck them!

Just watch what happens the next time the Pacers have a deal agreed to in principle before that July 1 date. Teams are going to be coming out of the woodwork to file a complaint. Indiana better stay squeaky clean for the next few years at least.
