Keith Glass Rumors
Some players who do not command big paychecks still regard the Knicks as a possible destination. “I have not had a player say to me, ‘I don’t want to go to New York,’” said Keith Glass, an agent for players. “I’ve never had that. But I don’t represent stars. I represent the middle of the pack on down, so my guys are happy to get a paycheck, and they would love to play for the Knicks.”
Glass: I’d like to think racism wasn’t involved. Although in the last three years, who knows, my opinion of the country has changed. I mean that. It’s been very disturbing to see the underbelly of what’s been unleashed here. In retrospect, who knows. I just think that the color the public resents is green more than black or white. I’ve always felt that way though I may be wrong. Do people resent the fact that black people are making a lot of money? I think that’s true. At that time, I was naive to that. Looking at the Kaepernick situation, I think that’s a big part of that.
Those documents, and the expense reports of Pina and other ASM employees, are part of the cache of evidence the FBI collected from ASM’s offices in a raid last fall during its three-year federal investigation of basketball’s black market. It led to the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York charging 10 men in a major corruption case that has rocked college athletics to its core. “The whole system is corrupt,” longtime NBA agent Keith Glass said. “It’s corruption on top of corruption.”
Following Sunday’s loss to the lowly Atlanta Hawks, the Knicks are 23-31, and sit four games behind the Philadelphia 76ers for the No. 8 seed in the East. It looks like the Knicks will miss the playoffs for a fifth straight season dating to their 2013 loss to the Indiana Pacers in the second round. “I would definitely try to just acquire as many as assets for the future as I could,” longtime NBA agent Keith Glass told SNY.tv in reference to the Knicks. The Knicks are treating the trade deadline with an “opportunistic” approach, one source familiar with their way of thinking said.
Former NBA coach Scott Skiles has not been contacted by the Timberwolves on their coaching vacancy, according to his agent Keith Glass. “I’ve had zero conversations with the Timberwolves,” Glass said.
Skiles, who coached three teams from 1999 to 2013, is believed to want to coach again and has received interest from other franchises with vacancies, Glass said. Skiles, 50, had a 443-433 record and six playoff appearances across tenures with Phoenix, Chicago and Milwaukee.
