HoopsHype Kevin Bradbury rumors
Kevin Bradbury: Congrats to my man @Rodney Williams on signing with 76ers today. You have come a long way little bro. Let's keep fighting!! Twitter
First-rounders will get guaranteed contracts once the lockout is over, so playing overseas may be more risky for them, because teams can void contracts if players return with a debilitating injury. So the representatives for Boston first-round pick JaJuan Johnson are not as eager to seek an overseas contract. According to Johnson’s agent, Kevin Bradbury, Johnson will remain in the States working out with former Michael Jordan workout guru Tim Grover in Chicago. “I don’t think it’s time for that yet, especially for a kid like JaJuan,’’ Bradbury said. “He’s got things he can improve before the season starts and he wants to be a Boston Celtic and so he’s going to do everything he can to focus on that.’’ Boston Globe
Many agents are convinced owners want to break the union and have little intention of negotiating. “We knew this lockout was coming, so if your agent was smart, you had a plan for this already,’’ Bradbury said. “There is not that sense of ‘Oh my God, the lockout is here.’ “We knew these guys weren’t going to be able to make money for a certain amount of time and we’re not sure how long that’s going to be. We’ll have to have a plan in place for a few months or for the whole season or whatever happens. We have a plan for each of those things, so they are not struggling.’’ Boston Globe
