NBA to hit Rockets with $150,000 Howard fine

The SportsXchange

The Houston Rockets apparently spoke too soon about landing free-agent center Dwight Howard.

The Rockets were fined $150,000 by the NBA for unauthorized comments made during the league's free-agency moratorium, ESPN.com reported Tuesday. Teams are not allowed to sign or discuss free agents until Wednesday.

After the highly sought Howard announced his decision on Friday night to sign with Houston after one season with the Los Angeles Lakers, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey announced on Twitter: "Welcome to Houston @DwightHoward!!!" And then, "Years of work by Dwight & Rockets went into this. This team is going to be special."

In addition to his Twitter posts, Morey appeared in television in Houston to discuss Howard's announcement.

Earlier this summer, the Rockets were fined by the NBA along with two other teams for tampering after the team's website talked about potential free agents during the moratorium.
