A federal judge in North Carolina has granted Zion Williamson partial judgment in his lawsuit against a former marketing agent who sued the New Orleans Pelicans star for $100 million in damages claiming breach of contract. In Wednesday’s ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Loretta C. Biggs voided Williamson’s marketing agreement with Gina Ford and Prime Sports Marketing because it didn’t meet the requirements of North Carolina’s Uniform Athlete Agents Act.
Fred Katz: Bradley Beal says of playing the Bucks on Friday after 11 days off and very little practice time: “That’s just a recipe for injury, honestly.” He says the Wizards are fighting the league on it.
Tom Orsborn: Steve Kerr on if he could see Pop coaching beyond this season: “Sure. And I don’t think he’s made any decisions yet. But why not? He’s still sharp as ever. You can see the impact he still makes by watching his team.”
Chase Hughes: Wizards announce SIX players are out for Friday’s game vs. Bucks due to Covid protocol, plus two more for injuries: Deni Avdija, Davis Bertans, Troy Brown Jr., Rui Hachimura, Ish Smith, Moe Wagner. Also, Thomas Bryant (ACL) and Russell Westbrook (quad).
