BJ Armstrong RumorsAll NBA Players
“We have every reason to believe in management and Joe (Lacob) and his leadership and Bob Myers and all the people there that things will get worked out,” agent B.J. Armstrong said Monday. “And we will continue to go through the process. This is an incredible opportunity for everyone because this is a young team. They have a great nucleus, a great coaching staff. This is an enormous opportunity for everyone involved, OK? Draymond is so thankful to be part of the Warriors organization. We understand that. He understands that. The Warriors organization understands that. Let’s focus on the ‘we’ of the situation. They have a great team, and sometimes in life things come together.”
Myers anticipates no problems as a result of powerhouse agent Arn Tellem this month leaving the Wasserman Media Group that represents Green to become a high-ranking executive with the Detroit Pistons. Myers worked for WMG before coming to the Warriors four years ago. “No, B.J. Armstrong is going to be the point guy. We have a great rapport — I used to work with him,” Myers said. “So I don’t envision any issues there.”
Sam Amick: Warriors small forward Draymond Green, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, tells @USATODAYsports he is changing agents. Green said he’s leaving Herb Rudoy and Ron Shade of Interperformances to join BJ Armstrong and Arn Tellem of the @Wasserman media group.
The two most obvious faces in the Rose Camp are his brother/manager, Reggie, and his agent, B.J. Armstrong. Reggie obviously did little to help his brother’s cause on Feb. 21, 2013, blasting the organization on the night of the trade deadline for its lack of movement. Never mind that Derrick Rose was still nursing a torn left anterior cruciate ligament, despite team doctors clearing him to return. It wasn’t the last time the organization would have problems with Reggie expressing his opinion. Then there’s Armstrong. The former Bulls guard and title winner worked for the organization under former general manager Jerry Krause. But when vice president of basketball operations John Paxson came in, Armstrong was demoted from his assistant GM post into a scouting position. Armstrong was completely out by 2005, reportedly unhappy with Paxson and the Bulls. The fact that Armstrong, who works for the Wasserman Media Group in Los Angeles, became Rose’s agent was an obvious concern for the Bulls.
