Andy Miller Rumors
The Knicks have a multi-lingual, multi-skilled and extremely marketable talent, but Porzingis’ agent, Andy Miller, said he is looking more for business partnerships – which will surely develop in time – over simple endorsement opportunities for his client. The overwhelming attention has made it increasingly tougher for Porzingis to find a place to eat without being recognized. Some people assume he’s important when he enters a room simply by his sheer size.
Brad Turner: Can confirm that Clippers guard Austin Rivers has joined agent Andy Miller, as @Liz Mullen first reported.
Agent Andy Miller will be hosting a pro-day camp next week in Vegas that figures to attract a ton of scouts. Among those working out will be Kristaps Porzingis and Myles Turner, likely lottery picks, along with Christian Wood, Chris McCullough, Rakeem Christmas, Jarell Martin and Michael Frazier, all potential first or early-second round picks.
Phil Jackson, Knicks team president: When I realized that [Garnett] was available and wanted to leave Minnesota, I put a big push on (to acquire him). Andy Miller: Cleveland was involved. They were a distant third in the whole thing.
