ESPN has reported The NBA has fined the New Jersey Nets $50,000. The reason for the hit stems from a locker room visit by part-owner and Hip-Hop mogul Jay-Z. Soon after the Wildcats clinched a berth in the NCAA Final Four Tournament Jay-Z went into the locker room to congratulate the team. However, NBA rules prohibit any team personnel from having contact with players soon to be eligible for the Draft.
