MILWAUKEE -- The NBA has fined Milwaukee Bucks co-owner for tampering, according to ESPN's Malika Andrews.

A couple weeks ago, New Orleans Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis requested a trade from his current team. Under NBA tampering rules, this is not allowed and Davis was fined $50,000.

Lasry is the next man in violation of these tampering rules and has been fined $25,000.

"It doesn’t make a difference if you’re in Milwaukee, New York or LA. The whole goal is winning. So we hope it would be players like Anthony Davis and others who want to come to Milwaukee," Lasry reportedly said.

Davis wasn't moved by Feb. 7 trade deadline and will have to wait until this summer to find his new home.
