The New York Knicks will have to pay up after excluding the New York Daily News from their post-draft press conference.
The Knicks were hit with a $50,000 fine on Monday for violating league rules regarding equal access for media after the Daily News was not permitted to cover the team’s press conference last Friday. In a statement, the league said that the Knicks have agreed to abide by the rules in the future.
