NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Minnesota Timberwolves president of basketball operations David Kahn has been fined $50,000 for his recent remarks about forward Michael Beasley, for whom the team recently traded.
Kahn spoke about Beasley's marijuana use in Miami, reasoning that it hampered his play with the Heat. He added that he spoke to Beasley about discontinuing his marijuana use with the Timberwolves, which would help him become a better player.
The Timberwolves recently acquired Beasley, the second overall pick of the 2008 draft, from Miami, which was looking to clear cap space after signing Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh to long-term contracts.
The organization was also fined a separate $50,000 for the remarks.
