Some recent reports claim that NBA has stopped investigating the source from Cleveland related to horrible Luol Deng comments.

There were some depressing tidbits about NBA’s approach when it comes to investigating. Danny Ferry singed off after a shockingly misleading scouting report Luol Deng. 

According to Yahoo! Sports, Danny Ferry "paraphrased a line that equated being of African heritage as also being prone to acting as a duplicitous two-face."

He said that he never withheld any kind of information to his bosses. He also never thought he would end up in a nonsense scouting report in the first place. 

An ex-employee of Cleveland Cavaliers said those words as proved the report that was leaked later. A Hawk employee decided to copy and paste the Cleveland source’s thoughts into a report. 

And just a few weeks into the investigation the NBA decided to call quits on the investigation. This is the thing people were fearing the most and is very similar to the Donald Sterling's case in which he was dismissed. 

Danny Ferry’s departure will not become a big trouble for NBA. Advertisers will not stop the endorsements. Press is not using any kind of bad words in their headlines. 

Sterling had done illegal activities and this is why NBA moved swiftly to oust the longtime LA Clippers owner.  When Sterling was taken to court, the right and the wrong were separated and Sterling had to move to sell the LA Clippers. 

A lot of people are still concerned about Ronald Sterling’s wife who is still working in the NBA. His wife has a shady past and this is why people think she will damage NBA. 

Currently, NBA has no link with the ex-Cavalier executive and also don’t have any legal recourse with Ferry and this is why his future lies in the hands of the Hawk’s owner. 

People are still thinking whether he is going to be banished from the Hawks or not and the Hawks are yet to make a final decision. Although Ferry’s history as a GM has not been that great, he still has basketball acumen and would be able to keep a job in an NBA front office.
