10/25/00
The NBA voided Joe Smith's current contract and his past two contracts,
fined Minnesota $3.5 million, and removed Minnesota's next 5 1st round
draft picks as a result of Smith and Minnesota's secret agreement for a
future multi-year, multi-million contract which was a blatant violation of
the collective bargaining agreement.  The NBA is still determining
possible suspensions for team personnel for their involvement in the
illegal agreement.  Voiding Smith's past contracts removed his Larry Bird
rights with the team [ability to re-sign regardless of Minnesota's salary
cap after he has played with the team for 3 seasons] and Minnesota's
opportunity to re-sign him at 120% of last season's salary (Minnesota has
already used their $2.25 million exception) [voiding the past contracts
does not involve Smith having to give back any money].  Smith is now a
free agent and can sign with any team (restricted by the amount a team has
available under the salary cap or any exceptions available), including
re-signing with Minnesota.  Smith is planning on appealing the voiding of
the past contracts.

10/23/00
An arbitrator ruled that the NBA can void Joe Smith's contract, but that
Smith could sign with any of the 29 teams (for whatever a team had
available under the salary cap or available exceptions), including
re-signing with Minnesota and retaining his 2 years toward Larry Bird
rights.  The NBA was looking to restrict Smith from returning to Minnesota.
Smith and Minnesota had a secret agreement for a future multi-year,
multi-million contract for when he gained Larry Bird rights with Minnesota
(2001-02) - a blatant violation of the collective bargaining agreement.
The league will likely hand down heavy fines for Minnesota.  The league
can fine Minnesota up to $3,500,000, forfeit Minnesota draft picks, void
Smith's contract, and suspend up to 1 year any team personnel involved
(almost certainly the owner, Glen Taylor, and maybe others).

10/16/00

conditioning.

7/20/00

2000-01 season for not complying with his treatment obligations under
the league's anti-drug program.  The NBA does not release details of
violations of the anti-drug program.

7/7/00
The NBA fined Dallas and Milwaukee $50,000 each for violating league rules
governing the tryouts of draft prospects.  League rules prohibit having 4
draft prospects on the court at the same time and having draft prospects
compete against veterans.  [Dallas was fined for using a draft prospect in
a 5-on-5 scrimmage.]

3/17/00
The NBA rescinded the $100,000 fines levied against Seattle and Toronto
for their coaches refusing to wear microphones during Sunday's Sea-Tor

going into Golden State's locker room to verbally confront Vonteego
Cummings (GS) during Tuesday's Dal-GS game.  Trent, who is on IR, will
serve the suspension after he is activated.  The league has rules against
players entering the opponent's locker room.  [But, IMO, it is ridiculous
that Trent was fined more than Davis and that Cummings wasn't suspended
for his nasty body slam of an airborn Nash.  BTW, the two incidents
occurred about 5 minutes apart.]

1/27/00
The NBA fined Shawn Bradley (Dal) $3,000 for his actions in the
