NEW YORK -- Washington Wizards owner Ted Leonsis was fined $100,000 by the NBA for unauthorized public comments regarding the league's collective bargaining negotiations.

Leonsis reportedly said he expected the NBA to have a hard salary cap, similar to the one in the NHL. Leonsis, who also owns the Washington Capitals, reportedly made his comments to a group of business leaders during a breakfast meeting at George Mason University.

The NBA's current collective bargaining agreement is set to expire on June 30, 2011.
