The NBA fined the Minnesota Timberwolves $250,000 on Monday for carrying out offseason workout sessions in Miami in September during the offseason, the league announced.

The sessions were based at the Miami home of new minority owner Alex Rodriguez, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. However, teams aren't permitted to conduct workout sessions or practices during the offseason outside of their home market.

Several tweets posted by the team in September placed the team in Miami, with players participating in what appear to be organized workouts with staff present.

Rodriguez and billionaire businessman Marc Lore officially became part owners of the Timberwolves and the WNBA's Minnesota Lynx in July when they acquired 20% of the franchise. The duo agreed to pay $1.5 billion for the franchise from Glen Taylor, who will temporarily remain in control to aid Rodriguez and Lore during the transition.
