Michael Winger Rumors

But, outside of E Baldi in Beverly Hills, West explained why he’s not comfortable being hailed as the hero. “This was hard work by our front office,” West said … “Lawrence Frank, Michael Winger. All the people associated with it.” West says he’s very excited for the 2019-20 season and says with the Lakers signing Anthony Davis to play with LeBron, basketball “should really be fun for fans” in L.A.
Storyline: Clippers Front Office
Clippers leadership — Ballmer, Frank and general manager Michael Winger — harbored fears that Presti was close to striking a deal with Toronto that would have delivered George to Leonard and the NBA champions, sources said. Had Presti been able to strike a deal for George with Toronto — and Leonard was willing to stay — George was believed to be willing to join the Raptors, sources said. Presti pursued a package of Russell Westbrook and George to the Raptors — with the NBA’s Most Improved Player, forward Pascal Siakam, as the centerpiece of a broader, asset-crippling deal — but Ujiri couldn’t keep up with the Clippers’ willingness to unload unprotected first-round picks into the middle of the next decade, league sources said. Simply, Toronto didn’t have the depth of picks it needed to get a deal done — nor the certainty that getting George would make Leonard stay with the Raptors, sources said.

Jon Krawczynski: Clippers GM Michael Winger informed the Wolves that he intends to stay with the LA Clippers to continue the work he has done with Lawrence Frank, Doc Rivers, Jerry West, Steve Ballmer, and the rest of the Clippers organization, league sources tell @TheAthleticMIN
When Altman visited with James in the Cavaliers’ practice facility a week ago, he let him know that there were still talks alive with the LA Clippers on a Jordan deal. What’s more, there was significant progress: Altman had ownership approval to send the Clippers Jae Crowder, Channing Frye, Iman Shumpert and the Cavs’ 2018 first-round pick for Jordan. The Clippers were willing to accept the trade, but on one significant condition. Clippers general manager Michael Winger explained to Altman that LA didn’t want another shooting guard. He hoped to find a third team that would take Shumpert and his $21 million with draft compensation, and have the Clippers get a center back. Altman and Winger agreed to make more calls to try to find a third team to make the deal work. Winger wondered whether Altman would let him talk to Shumpert’s agent about a possible contract buyout, but Altman wanted trade talks to be further along before granting that permission.
