Why do GMs hire their agent's other clients instead of best coaching candidate available? Peter Vecsey: We know we don't like it. It's been happening for years. It's not only Warren LeGarie and Olshey, it's Arn Tellem. That's where he started, as a workout guy. Arn Tellem has been pushing him. Warren has got a cult going or something, the way these GMs, presidents and owners listen to him. It's fascinating that he's able to get one of his clients into Portland with what went on with Kevin Pritchard. Your listeners are well aware of that. I believe I was the one who broke that story about how it happened. They ended up getting fired because the line to the owner and the owner's right hand guy, they tried to usurp Miller and maybe it's worked. Maybe that's why Miller left. I don't know Miller but maybe he left because they weren't listening to him any more. I don't know. Blazers Edge

In its seventh year, the Las Vegas Summer League is thriving. Attendance is up and teams from both conferences have quickly filled up the available slots. But with a lockout looming, the league could be forced to close its doors in the summer of 2011. Warren LeGarie is hoping to prevent that. LeGarie, the high-profile agent who started the league, said he has explored the possibility of filling the slots next summer with teams from the NBA's D-League (which would not be affected by a lockout) and European national teams. LeGarie said he has talked to representatives from several national teams, all of which have expressed interest in playing in Las Vegas. SI.com
