Chicago Bulls pivot Tristan Thompson was fined $20,000 by the NBA on Saturday for making abusive remarks about a referee.

The episode came Thursday night in New Orleans after Thompson received two technical fouls and was ejected 21.2 seconds into the bottom of the fourth quarter in Chicago’s 126-109 loss to the Pelicans.

In 48 games for the Bulls this season, Thompson averages 6.2 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. The 31-year-old Canadian was a mainstay of the Cleveland Cavaliers during their four-game NBA Finals streak, including a 2016 NBA championship with star LeBron James.
