Keith Glass Rumors
Following Sunday’s loss to the lowly Atlanta Hawks, the Knicks are 23-31, and sit four games behind the Philadelphia 76ers for the No. 8 seed in the East. It looks like the Knicks will miss the playoffs for a fifth straight season dating to their 2013 loss to the Indiana Pacers in the second round. “I would definitely try to just acquire as many as assets for the future as I could,” longtime NBA agent Keith Glass told SNY.tv in reference to the Knicks. The Knicks are treating the trade deadline with an “opportunistic” approach, one source familiar with their way of thinking said.
Former NBA coach Scott Skiles has not been contacted by the Timberwolves on their coaching vacancy, according to his agent Keith Glass. “I’ve had zero conversations with the Timberwolves,” Glass said.
Skiles, who coached three teams from 1999 to 2013, is believed to want to coach again and has received interest from other franchises with vacancies, Glass said. Skiles, 50, had a 443-433 record and six playoff appearances across tenures with Phoenix, Chicago and Milwaukee.
Douby, who Glass would later assert was coerced to change agents by Miller and his high school coach, Jack Ringel, had spoken with Glass not long before firing him. And even if he didn’t know it yet, Glass’ three-year process of firing back had officially begun. “I was on the phone with Quincy, and he had not said anything, (but) I knew we had a problem (in their relationship),” Glass, who has been an agent for nearly 30 years, told FanHouse in what were his first extensive public comments about the case. “And I could tell that he was talking to somebody or somebody was talking to him as he was talking to me. I’ve known Quincy for years, and we’d gone through a lot. I could tell this conversation was not right. You didn’t have to be a genius. He said to me, ‘Mr. Glass, or Keith,’ I’ll call you back in five minutes, because he was being coached (by the person in the room). I never spoke to Quincy again in my life.
