Knicks Fined $50,000 for Violating Media Policy

The New York Knicks have been fined $50,000 after the team didn't let the New York Daily News access a press conference last Friday.

The NBA said Monday that the Knicks allowed all other media with credentials to enter their post-draft press conference on June 21 except the Daily News, which violates the Association's rules on equal media access.

In a statement, the Knicks said they "made an error in interpreting Friday’s announcement as an invite only event."

"As we do throughout the year, we have and will continue to provide access to credentialed media as per the League’s policy," the statement continued.

The Knicks on Friday drafted guard RJ Barrett who said he's "glad that the city wants me here as much as I want to be here."
