Noah Croom Rumors

Former teammate Jameer Nelson is one of many people who have witnessed West’s post-career distress and offered help. The National Basketball Players Association has maintained close contact with West and made itself available as a resource. His college coach at Saint Joseph, Phil Martelli, and West’s former player agent, Noah Croom, have been in communication with each other — and West — about providing him support. The same can be said for the Celtics and Mavericks. Both Boston GM Danny Ainge and Dallas owner Mark Cuban have been in direct contact at various points, according to those close to West.
The Portland Trail Blazers have interviewed agent Noah Croom for the franchise’s vacant general manager’s job, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Croom has met with Blazers officials at least once in Portland, sources said. Before joining the Goodwin Sports agency, Croom was an assistant general manager from 1995-2000 with the Vancouver and Memphis Grizzlies. He was a candidate for several front-office jobs in recent years, but chose to stay as an agent.
