Roger Montgomery Rumors
“This is a really dry market, so we could see more players than usual sign for the mid-level exception,” said Roger Montgomery, who’s represented players such as Jeremy Lin, Rudy Gay and Mo Evans. “I think the market is definitely going to be different than it was in the past. After that summer-of-2016 windfall, some people thought that every year after that would be somewhat similar.”
Roger Montgomery: “However, next summer I think it’ll start to loosen up a bit because teams will have some of that 2016 money coming off their books and they’ll be ready to reset a bit and spend money, especially with the cap set to go up.”
Gay had surgery five days later, expecting to be ready for the start of the 2017-18 season. Gay’s agent Roger Montgomery recalled a lot of negativity that Gay heard about guys his age who suffer that injury. “Rudy was motivated to defy the odds and come back strong,” Montgomery said. “So many people said that it was a tough injury that ends careers. Three days after, he said he had this motivation to defy the odds.”
Roc Nation Sports has signed three players for representation in this year’s NBA draft, including Villanova guard Josh Hart. Roc Nation also signed Florida State forward Dwayne Bacon and Oregon forward/center Chris Boucher. Joe Branch will represent Hart, Roger Montgomery will represent Bacon and Sam Permut will represent Boucher.
