“The league office is looking into whether any contact took place between Ben Simmons and the Los Angeles Lakers that violated NBA rules,” NBA spokesman Mike Bass said Monday, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Johnson said Sunday that Simmons reached out to the Lakers to see if the two could get together in the summer, via Bill Oram of the Athletic:

Magic Johnson takes one last question and says Ben Simmons contacted the Lakers about getting together to learn from a fellow big guard. Magic said he’s game – as long as the league signs off.
Seems like a good time to mention Simmons is represented by Rich Paul and Klutch. https://t.co/djgq9TOWNk
