The New Jersey Nets have been fined $50,000 by the NBA due to minority owner Jay-Z’s illegal contact with Kentucky players, a league source confirmed to SI.com.
The entertainment mogul visited with the Wildcats in the team’s Prudential Center locker room on March 27, congratulating them after a win over North Carolina in the Elite Eight portion of the NCAA tournament and clearly ignoring league rules prohibiting contact with players who have college eligibility remaining.
The meet-and-greet was reportedly captured on video by nearby cameras, sparking an investigation that was first reported by CBSSports.com. The fine was first reported by ESPN.com.
