Hardaway’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, was furious at the accusation there’s a serious rift between Anthony and Hardaway. “There’s no ill will between Tim and Carmelo — it’s just the opposite,” Bartelstein said. “Carmelo has helped out Tim a lot, they have a great relationship and Carmelo has been very supportive. It’s very hurtful and untrue.’’ New York Post

The Cavaliers and Hornets were among those stops, and Bartelstein said Hayward came away especially impressed by Charlotte’s pitch — a playoff team last year in the East, trying to take the next step — and, of course, by its cash. "They really rolled out the red carpet and let him know how bad they wanted him, and they obviously put together a terrific offer," Bartelstein said. Salt Lake Tribune

The Cavs, though, are not expected to pursue significant changes to their basketball department until after the season. And it's believed within the industry that they would have little hope convincing Bartelstein to leave Chicago-based Priority Sports, which he founded and which represents numerous NFL players in addition to his basketball clientele.

Sources told ESPN.com this week that the Cavs have interest in trying to recruit Bartelstein into their management structure as other teams have done in recent years, most notably the Phoenix Suns' hiring of Lon Babby and the Golden State Warriors' hiring of Bob Myers. ESPN.com

He acquired Tyson Chandler, toed the company line by generally avoiding interaction with reporters and coped with an onerous payroll (see: Amar’e Stoudemire) by surrounding Anthony with effective role players. “Well, I’m a big fan of Glen,” said Mark Bartelstein, a prominent agent. “I thought he did a good job, so I’m surprised from that standpoint.” New York Times

Stiemsma’s agent said there’s still a chance his client could return to the Wolves, even if they drafted Louisville center Gorgui Dieng last month to essentially fill Stiemsma’s role as a backup center. “This was a cap move,” agent Mark Bartelstein said. “They like him. There are so many different variables right now with teams and their cap space. We’ll get through this [moratorium period] and see what happens.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune
