Sam Hinkie Rumors

“There has to be a level of understanding, a level of trust between teams,” one former GM says. “I think Sam had a hard time opening up in that process. If you are trying to win the deal each time, that’s fine, as long as the other side gets a win too. But if you are trying to kill them, then it makes it harder to work with them in the future.” Adds one Western Conference executive: “Sam’s a hard-nosed negotiator, which is intimidating to some people. There’s a bit of ‘what’s behind the curtain?’ with Sam. People don’t know what his factors are. It’s not as straightforward as ‘I like that guy.'”
