CBS Sports has reported that numerous deals were already being worked on behind scenes. Adding that when the CBA looked close teams were all willing to “bend rules” to make sure they weren’t at a disadvantage.
My agent source said teams are in full negotating mode now with agents. He believes — shocker — numerous deals are already done.
The agent also said something interesting that teams were informing agents which of their clients was going to get cut so teams stayed under the salary cap.
Pro sports teams bend rules behind close doors? What is this world coming to? If the Teams won’t police themselves, who will?
But alright seriously, it’s not too much of a shocker teams were getting numbers lined up on the Sunday before the deal. But what is very interesting is that teams were alerting agents which of their clients were going to be cut. That seems to sorta ruin the surprise of a player being cut, but as long as they act surprised on Twitter, I’ll be happy.
