Agent Rich Paul calls Lakers ‘us’

NBC Sports

Article Summary:

Paul brought up the Nets, saying that they were “The only team that can beat us.” This sounded like a strangely partisan observation for an agent with clients across the N.B.A., especially after all the criticism he had received when bringing Anthony Davis to the Lakers. Because LeBron wanted Paul-represented Davis to join him on the Lakers, was Paul more likely to deliver Davis to Los Angeles regardless of what was best for Davis?

But at least everyone knows Paul’s conflict of interest. When hiring Paul, Davis knew Paul would be the best agent for getting him out of New Orleans and to LeBron and the Lakers.

That’s not always easy, and Paul’s conflicts of interest should receive scrutiny.
