Adrian Wojnarowski Rumors
Until the end, though, Krause was endlessly intrigued with the modern NBA and asked questions about the general managers and players. Tell me about R.C. Buford and Neil Olshey, Masai Ujiri and Sam Presti, he would ask. After Kevin Durant left Oklahoma City, he started to ask questions about Presti and his Thunder roster. I told Presti about my conversation with Krause, passed along a phone number and it wasn’t long until Presti made a trip to Chicago and spent an afternoon with Krause.
Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski released an essay on The Vertical Twitter last night that destroys Dolan, painting the ultimate picture of the Knicks owner as an incompetent and undeserving owner. “Dolan has terrible judgement in people and gets easily manipulated. His instincts are horrible. His circle of advisers as rudderless as Dolan himself. Mostly Jim Dolan is surrounded with sycophants and henchmen who help him carry out his petty grudges and person feuds. Forever feeding his bottomless pit of paranoia.”
NBA scoopmaster Adrian Wojnarowski is close to an agreement to leave Yahoo and join ESPN, according to multiple sources, a huge shakeup in the basketball reporting world that will have a wider-reaching effects beyond where you get your news.
Wojnarowski and Yahoo signed a four-year contract worth over $6 million. According to a source, Wojnarowski’s exit from Yahoo is complicated, and will likely take months to fully sort out. It isn’t clear if the contract has an escape clause, or if ESPN or Wojnarowski is paying Yahoo a buyout, or something else.
