NBA's first property rule: Do not talk about the property of the NBA.
Or the business that you carry on as an owner until it becomes official, even if at that time everyone knew it for days and had already left the subject.

The NBA office fined US $ 50,000 owner Mark Cuban, owner of Dallas Mavericks, after confessing he disclosed to a reporter at last week's board of governors meeting information revealed …
"I appreciate the irony of your reporting on a fine, but you will not be fined for disclosing yourself," Cuban told ESPN.
According to sources, Vivek Ranadive, owner of the Sacramento Kings, is concerned that information on the vote authorizing the challenges of the coaches will be communicated while the meeting was still in session. Cuban immediately admitted that he had leaked the information, sources said.
Well done, Cuban.
It's a good law letter, but was it a big deal that it came out? The vote was almost assured, a formality, but Cuban is fined for telling people? Thank you, Vivek.

Here is the quote oh-so-pity:

No damaging or even interesting information was disclosed in either case. The fines have not been heavy because of this, but the NBA process of what is prohibited and unauthorized around trade and free trade – as well as the improbable meeting of the board of governors – seems late.
