Over the last couple of years the NBA has taken the tampering rules very seriously. Although its hard to clearly define what's actually tampering, some players and executives have received big fines.
The most recent one was the Philadelphia 76ers President of Basketball Operations Daryl Morey, who was fined $50,000 for a deleted tweet about James Harden that violated the league's anti-tampering policy.
Morey posted a tweet for an anniversary on a past Harden accomplishment with the Houston Rockets, which he deleted several minutes later.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Morey told league it was an inadvertent post from an automated app.
The former NBA MVP has reportedly requested a trade from Houston and one of his preferred destinations were the Philadelphia 76ers.
Following a 13-year tenure with the Rockets, where he was the General Manager, Morey was hired by the 76ers this past offseason.
