Kings’ Williams Fined $15,000
NEW YORK (AP) _ Jason Williams of the Sacramento Kings was fined $15,000 Tuesday by the NBA for cursing at fans during the Kings’ 122-101 win at Golden State on Feb. 28.
Williams, who had 10 assists in the game, was fined by Stu Jackson, the NBA’s senior vice president for basketball operations.
This is the third time this season that Williams, one of the league’s flashiest and most popular players, has had problems.
On Dec. 1, Williams was fined $10,000 for swearing at fans and making obscene gestures during a game in San Antonio.
Williams also was suspended for the first five games of the season for failing to comply with his drug treatment plan.
