Agents Rumors

“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.”
Madison Square Garden has hired Hollywood agent David “Doc” O’Connor — a partner with CAA — as its CEO, The Post has learned. A former film agent, O’Connor was instrumental in launching CAA Sports — a major growth vehicle for the talent agency since its formation in 2006. In a matter of months, USA Today reported in 2007, CAA took the sports division “from concept to colossus.” CAA Sports has been so successful at representing players on the MSG-owned New York Knicks that the NBA team has at times been dubbed “the New York Knicks Brought to You by CAA.”

Pacers point guard Donald Sloan has spent the offseason in his hometown Dallas, reshaping his career in more ways than one. As Sloan prepares for his summer of free agency – grinding through two-a-day workouts and day long pick-up games – he has switched representation. Sloan, who approaches his fifth NBA season, will now be represented by sports agents Byron Irvin and Dan Fegan of Relativity Sports. The deal was finalized on Friday night. “Some things weren’t happening the way they should have with who I was represented by the last few years,” Sloan told The Star, “so I just figured now’s a good time as any to make the switch.”
