NBA agents

  1. Agents make empty threat to steer players away from hardliners

    Nov 9, 2011, 3:13 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    In a lockout filled with — at times seemingly defined by — empty threats, this is my new favorite. There are agents and players out there very frustrated with the hardline NBA owners. Understandably. Those are the owners who think even the 50/50 deal the sides are close to making is too soft a play.…

  2. Report about Rip Hamilton shows players, agents not all unified

    Oct 5, 2011, 11:52 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Lakers

    A bunch of agents talked on the phone Wednesday amongst themselves, saying they were looking for ways to help the union in its struggle with the owners. Of course it was not about what the agents wanted, it was about their players and an overriding concern for the greater good. Agents are altruistic like that.…

  3. Agents talking labor deal, but not decertification. Yet.

    Oct 5, 2011, 3:02 PM EDT

    Billy Hunter, Kobe Bryant

    Two days ago, a number of top agents sent out a letter to clients urging them not to buckle — and not to let players union chief Billy Hunter buckle — to the demands of NBA owners. Now those same agents are getting on the phone today to discuss what they see as the next…

  4. Derek Fisher sends letter to players answering agents

    Oct 4, 2011, 8:02 AM EDT

    Derek Fisher, Billy Hunter

    Derek Fisher and the NBA players union is now fighting a war on two fronts — one with the NBA over the new collective bargaining agreement, and one with some player agents. At least it feels that way. Monday six agents sent out a letter to their clients saying not to ratify any labor agreement…

  5. Top agents tell clients to reject any more givebacks in labor deal

    Top NBA agents may be throwing a monkey wrench into the NBA labor negotiations on the eve of the biggest day of negotiations. Six of the top NBA agents — who are no fan of union chief Billy Hunter and have been worried the union is giving up too much in negotiations — sent a…

  6. Agent David Falk thinks he could get a deal done in one day

    Sep 26, 2011, 3:32 PM EDT

    David Falk

    David Falk is right. He went a little Dave Mason on us, but he’s right. It’s not that hard for most of us to imagine an NBA labor deal getting done because we can see the middle ground pretty clearly. We can all pretty much guess where a deal will land. But yet, both sides…

  7. What the lockout hath wrought: more agents poaching clients

    Agents can get a little bored during the lockout. Normally they’d spend July and August getting their clients new deals, helping them with marketing and exposure, trying to sweep indiscretions under the table. It’s keeps a man busy. This summer there have been no negotiations. Well, there are the negotiations between the NBA players union…

  8. Report: NBA agents will try to kill deal not to their liking

    Sep 22, 2011, 11:02 AM EDT

    NBA: NOV 16 Pistons v Lakers

    You know what will really drag this lockout out and risk a full NBA season? Two things, one being owners fighting amongst themselves and not agreeing to a deal because of it, something we may already have seen some of (although it was denied later). The other is players fighting amongst themselves and against the…

  9. Agents to meet with union president to talk decertification

    Jul 22, 2011, 9:31 AM EDT

    Billy Hunter

    In it’s back pocket, the National Basketball Players Association — the NBA players union — has a bomb it could drop. During the season, it got the paperwork signed by players that would allow for decertification of the union. If filed this would end the union, allowing some players to then sue the league. It’s…
