Sopan Deb of The New York Times is reporting the NBA has begun an investigation centered around whether "improper inducements" were offered to players in order to circumvent the salary cap.
This follows Stephen A. Smith's reporting on Kawhi Leonard's team demands for his uncle, as well as other rumors suggesting the courtship of free agency went out of bounds in the summer of 2019. It will be interesting to see how deep this matter goes and what sort of penalties will be handed out, if any at all.
