HoopsHype BJ Armstrong rumors
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. Twitter @sam_amick
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. Chicago Sun-Times
