Magic Johnson is the face of the Lakers again

The Indiana Pacers have filed tampering charges against the Los Angeles Lakers over Paul George.

Lakers President Magic Johnson, General Manager Rob Pelinka and owner Jeanie Buss have been contacted by a league investigator and asked to supply "any correspondence pertaining to" George, his agent and his parents, according to Peter Vecsey on Patreon.

Mike Bass, the Executive Vice President of Communications for the National Basketball Association, issued a statement on Sunday afternoon.

August 21 will be the longest solar Eclipse in history
But total solar eclipses aren't just rare to specific locations on Earth; they're also pretty rare in the universe in general. Eclipses have spawned mythologies in cultures such as that of the ancient Egyptians who worshiped the sun as deity Amun-Ra.

It would be a rare twist of irony if Johnson's impatience to secure George for the Lakers ends up being the very thing that prevents that transaction from happening. He indicates the Lakers have been cooperative in the investigation and so far, "no findings have been made" to put the team at risk of punishment.

In June, George's agent, Aaron Mintz, was upfront with the Pacers, telling the franchise about George's intention to become a free agent in 2018 and that the four-time All-Star would not be returning to Indiana.

The Transcript has not received an indication that the tampering investigation is related specifically to Johnson's comments while on Kimmel. George has been public in his desire and interest to potentially play for his hometown Lakers.

"I had to go to CBA school, salary cap school and tampering school". This is how we see so many free agent meetings and agreements take place at 12:01 a.m. Allegations are investigated and must be supported by evidence. George was later traded to Oklahoma City for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. Punishment can include fines, suspensions, forfeiture of draft picks and transfers of draft picks from the tampering team to the victimized team.

If the firm is able to find sufficient evidence that Johnson contacted George about potentially joining the Lakers when he fit free agency during his time in IN, it could mean league sanctions not only against Los Angeles but for Johnson as well.
