Lockout Side Effect: Gag Order Handcuffs Worthy Causes

Mike Tokito reports that Blazers' alumni ambassador Brian Grant can't talk to current players about taking part in his fundraiser to fight Parkinson's disease. "Last year, Grant's star-studded "Shake It 'Til We Make It" event included Blazers Brandon Roy and Greg Oden along with Suns point guard Steve Nash. This year, however, Grant can't speak to those players because of his role with the Blazers, and would also be putting any NBA officials he brings in -- Heat president Pat Riley was a speaker at the dinner last year -- in jeopardy of breaking the gag order if they start a conversation with a current player."
