    He'll unretire after the All-Star break if there's an opening on one of the front horses.. especially if that team is in or near NY.

    My takeaway is that we want to play nice with Monta Ellis’ agent so are expressing interest in a “workout” solely as a favor.

    Rich Paul vs. Morey

    Gonna get interesting as the fines start piling up and if/how Paul can put pressure on Morey to get a deal done.

    Already been the star, and not worried about that?

    Why, who else does he rep? Never heard of him, not that me not having done that means anything.

    At least we get to see Morey get a taste of the medicine the monster/prick he created in Houston …. pulled on them last year to force his way out.

    Yeah, I tried looking him up but couldn’t find if he reps any other NBA players.

    It’s just the only plausible explanation I can think of. I can’t envision a scenario in which Rob and co legitimately think that (A) Ellis can still contribute and (B) Ellis fits a current need for our roster.

    According to Real GM, he's repped byJeff Fried, Happy David Walters, Steve McCaskill. The only real, employed NBA'er in their roladex is RJ Hampton.

    Maybe Rob:

    a) knows this agent, and is just doing him a solid, even if it's a token one, and/or
    b) is greasing some palms for zero cost now to develop relationships, and to possibly cash in on sometime in the future.

    Or in other words, playing long-term chess. Just me speculating.

    My only counter to the we're doing his agent a favor line of thinking... what about Faried and Collison? Are we doing favors for every agent of players out of the league? That seems unlikely to me.
