NBA Golden State's Stephen Jackson was fined 25,000 U.S. dollars on Tuesday due to saying he wanted to be traded.

Jackson, who averaged a team-best 20.7 points per game last season, told a local magazine last month that he wanted to leave the team.

According to the NBA trading policies, players are not permitted to make trade requests publicly.

Ron Artest, then of the Indiana Pacers, was fined during the 2005-06 season for requesting a trade through the media.
