Sacramento Kings fined

January 6, 2022 NEW YORK

The Sacramento Kings organization has been fined $50,000 for violating league rules prohibiting team owners and executives from interacting with scorer’s table personnel during game play, it was announced today by Byron Spruell, President, League Operations. Assistant General Manager Wes Wilcox was also fined $15,000. The incident took place during a timeout with 10:50 remaining in the third quarter of the Kings’ 115-113 win over the Miami Heat on Jan. 2 at Golden 1 Center, when Wilcox left his seat to confront operations personnel at the scorer’s table about their handling of a clock procedure during a jump ball. The clock procedure at issue was, in fact, administered correctly by the shot clock operator.
