Four NBA players — Spencer Hawes, Quincy Pondexter, Tony Wroten and Isaiah Thomas — have each been slapped with $15,000 fines for hooping in an “unsanctioned” June 23 University of Washington alumni game at Alaska Airlines Arena in Seattle. Per Yahoo! Sports: “It wasn’t immediately known if several other former Washington Huskies involved in the game, including Chicago Bulls free-agent guard Nate Robinson and Toronto Raptors guard Terrence Ross, were subject to the fines. Washington coach Lorenzo Romar organized the game. The NBA’s collective bargaining agreement mandates that players can’t play in public offseason games prior to July 1 or after Sept. 15 without league approval.”
