Jim Tanner Rumors
Alex Kennedy: Shane Larkin is no longer with agent Jim Tanner of Tandem Sports. The 26-year-old spent this season with Anadolu Efes, leading them to the Final Four while averaging 19.6 points, 3.6 threes and 3.2 assists (on 64.7% from the field and 50% from deep). He’s looking for a new agent.
Sitting next to his parents and his aunt and uncle, Phil and Carol Morant, at the office of his agent, Jim Tanner of Tandem Sports and Entertainment, Morant explained his decision Saturday to become a pro and his journey from lightly recruited player in South Carolina to lottery pick. “I didn’t try to force the decision to come out early,” Morant told USA TODAY Sports. “Me and my family just talked it over and felt like now is the right time and made that decision.”
Adrian Wojnarowski: Jeremy Lin is finalizing a buyout with Atlanta, clearing the way for him to sign with Toronto, agents Jim Tanner and Roger Montgomery tell ESPN.
While Kerr had previously said that Cook would not be on the playoff roster, Cook’s play and Curry’s health might change that. Curry returned from his ankle injury last Friday against the Hawks, but that didn’t last long as he suffered a knee strain. The two-time NBA MVP is expected to miss the first round of the playoffs, according to Kerr. A source told The Undefeated that the injury-plagued Warriors are seriously considering signing Cook for the remainder of the season. Doing so would mean the Warriors would have to cut a player on their 15-man roster. Cook’s agent Jim Tanner told The Undefeated on Monday that the Warriors have not talked to him about signing his client for the rest of the season.
