Melbourne Tigers' import Seth Scott has escaped a NBL suspension despite admitting to striking Sydney Kings' star Ben Magden in the head.

Scott was fined AUS$500 ($636) by NBL tribunal chair Elizabeth Woods on Thursday for his slap on Magden during the Kings' 72-67 win at Hisense Arena on Sunday.

Woods said she took into account Scott's ejection from the game over the incident.

"The Tribunal views the incident very seriously and it's not the type of behaviour which the NBL will tolerate," Woods said in her finding.

"The NBL has distributed points of emphasis to clubs and, like all sports, seeks to protect players in the league."

Scott was also given a suspended $500 ($636) fine and one-game penalty that will only come into effect if he is found guilty of any additional charges before March 24.

How do you expect the Breakers to perform in this season's Australian NBL?

Last season was a blip, they'll be champions once again

They'll go close to another title, beaten finalists I'd say

Playoffs for sure, but can't see them going any further

Not too excited, they'll miss the playoffs again
