Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for his comments regarding New Orleans Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis, league sources told ESPN's Malika Andrews.

The Bucks are reportedly one of four teams with whom Davis would sign a long-term deal. Lasry's response to the report was deemed a violation of the NBA's tampering rules, according to Andrews.

"I saw that report, and I think it's great," Lasry said in a recent interview, according to Mitch Lawrence of Sporting News. "It's a little bit of what we want. We want players to come and play in Milwaukee. And part of it is, when you're winning and you're setting a standard for excellence, people see that. People want to win.

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

New Orleans has already called on the league to strictly enforce its tampering rules amid numerous rumors linking Davis to other teams, most notably the Los Angeles Lakers.
