New, 1 comment

The NBA fined Minnesota Timberwolves president of basketball operations David Kahn $50,000 according to the Pioneer Press.

The team itself was also has fined the team $50,000 for Kahn’s “inappropriate comments” concerning recently acquired forward Michael Beasley.

While it wasn’t mentioned in the release, the most egregious comment was probably Kahn’s referring to Beasley’s pot smoking.

“He’s a very young and immature kid who smoked too much marijuana and has told me that he’s not smoking anymore, and I told him that I would trust him as long as that was the case,” Kahn said.
