Not only Leonard, but also mentioned in the meeting content that James illegally recruited Anthony Davis in the regular season, and James is likely to be severely punished by the league. But there are also obvious differences between the two things, after James said in an interview that "willing to play with Anthony Davis." Under the huge influence, James's remarks were magnified, and some team bosses felt that James was suggesting that the Lakers would pursue Davis. Under pressure, Xiao Hua sent a document to each team, which is to tell the teams that they are "safe and secure" and not to recruit players with contracts. James was also warned later.
Unlike James, Leonard’s private recruitment of Irving, Butler and Durant’s three free agents is not a problem in itself; but as he privately recruits a contract with George’s news, it leads to the latter. In the reconstruction of the team, Leonard’s behavior is even worse. In fact, it is said that James recruited a thick eyebrow only from the words of James, and there is no exact news report. Leonard privately recruited George, but it was captured by many reporters. The two are therefore likely to be subject to different penalties.
But there is no doubt that this behavior of both of them has had a bad influence on the alliance. Xiao Hua will also issue relevant policies to solve this problem later.xx
