Journalist: What kind of an effect did Jimmy Butler have on your game as a mentor and maybe someone you looked to model parts of your game after? Marcus Georges-Hunt: A big effect. I saw it first-hand the way he works to get to where he’s gotten. I see that his work ethic is really what got him to this point. There’s not a day that he doesn’t work. When I ask him questions, he’s always there to answer them. He’s been a lot of help. Him, Jamal, Taj (Gibson), when I ask a question or want to know something, they answer it. They help me out a lot.

The investigation follows one of the most tumultuous off-seasons in N.B.A. history, with many high-profile players switching teams. The N.B.A. is also exploring whether it needs to change its rules against tampering. Several players committed to signing with a team as soon as free agency negotiations officially opened at 6 p.m. on June 30 — even though teams were not allowed to begin recruiting before then. League rules prohibit players, coaches and front office executives from enticing an athlete under contract with another team to come play for their franchise.
