NBA: Hawks GM Danny Ferry fined $15K

BY CHARLES ODUM AP SPORTS WRITER ATLANTA (AP) – Hawks general manager Danny Ferry has been fined $15,000 by the NBA for inappropriate interaction with game officials following Saturday night's game against Boston. The fine was announced Monday by Stu Jackson, the league's executive vice president of basketball operations.
Atlanta led the Celtics by 19 points before losing 89-81. Ferry and the Hawks had no comment Monday. A person familiar with the incident says Ferry handed the officials a DVD recording of the game. Team officials are supposed to send such materials to the league for review. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because details of the incident had not been publically released. Celtics guard Rajon Rondo was suspended without pay for one game Monday for contact with official Rodney Mott in Saturday's game. © 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
