Aaron Goodwin Rumors
Toronto can offer him a five-year max deal, but there is the possibility that DeRozan could join his hometown Los Angeles Lakers and succeed Kobe Bryant. If he were to land in L.A. or another major market, DeRozan could expect to get shoe-deal offers worth three times the current range of less than half a million dollars that he’s earning from Nike. DeRozan is represented by Goodwin Sports, founded by twin brothers Aaron and Eric Goodwin, long considered some of the most creative and best shoe-deal negotiators in the industry. The Goodwins brokered James’ and Kevin Durant’s historic rookie shoe deals with Nike, and more recently leveraged Portland point guard Damian Lillard’s early All-Star-level play into a mammoth adidas signature shoe-deal extension.
Jamal Crawford went back with veteran agent Aaron Goodwin, with whom he’d been most of his career. “I was with him 11 of the 16 years, so I figured being the most comfortable with him why not finish what I started,?” Crawford said via direct message on Saturday. “…With my contract coming up, I needed experience and a pit bull.”
Mark Berman: Agent Aaron Goodwin on Francisco Garcia returning to the Rockets: “He liked the opportunity. He felt he could continue to help the team in a number of ways outside of just being a good guard on the team. He thought that he’d have an opportunity to play there a little bit more with Chandler Parsons being gone.”
