Daryl Morey does get in trouble for his Tweets.

This time it wasn’t an international incident, but when Stephen Curry shouted out his brother Seth Curry for a strong playoff game, 76ers GM Morey Tweeted this:

That will cost him $75,000 for “violating the league’s anti-tampering rule,” and the 76ers get a separate $75,000 fine for the same reason, the NBA announced on Monday. Stephen Curry is still under contract with the Warriors (and is likely to sign a much bigger one).

Morey tried to backtrack not long after his Tweet with this “it’s just a joke” followup, but the NBA league office is not always known for its sense of humor.
