Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (6/1/2018)
Another NBA Finals and another appearance by my man Draymond Green, so you know I’m cheering on the Golden State Warriors. Staying on basketball, how crazy is this report on the potential connection between Philadelphia 76ers general manager Bryan Colangelo and these Twitter “burner” accounts? As always, sports professor Michael McCann breaks it down really well from a legal perspective. I can’t believe we are already in the month of June, coming up on the 4 year anniversary of me starting my own law firm Heitner Legal. It’s been an awesome ride thus far and I see the fun/positive results only continuing in the future. With Memorial Day Weekend and being super busy with legal work, there wasn’t much new at Forbes or Inc., so let’s get straight to the weekly wrap-up:
- “This is a business. When it comes to this kind of stuff, that’s the reason why I have an agent,” Lewan said. “I don’t give him 3 percent to sit on their (backside)” [Titans, Taylor Lewan have yet to discuss contract extension].
- Kendal Vickers: “As the seventh round was going on, my agent started letting me know of some possible deals we may have if I didn’t get picked” [Vickers happy to be with Steelers].
- Said Robert Bailey: “For me, as an agent, I’m always looking for ways to give my athletes an edge and to have, at the time, the women’s Olympics track coach, their speed coach, literally in our community …” [Dolphins’ Scott among NFL players who have found secret weapon in Miami track coach Deem].
- Averaged 14.8 points, 5 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game as a sophomore [Maryland’s Kevin Huerter to stay in 2018 NBA Draft, hire agent, per report].
- Led Wake Forest in scoring with 16.8 points per game as a junior [WAKE FOREST POINT GUARD BRYANT CRAWFORD WILL REMAIN IN THE NBA DRAFT, SIGNS WITH AN AGENT].
