The agent of New York Knicks’ star Kristaps Porzingis is in some hot water.
ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the agent of New York Knicks’ forward Kristaps Porzingis as well as other star players, Andy Miller, has relinquished his National Basketball Players Association certification and will no longer represent players.
Wojnarowski says that Miller is a part of the FBI’s probe into college basketball. He’s represented players like Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka and Chauncey Billups.
Miller is the president and founder of ASM Sports, and many of his former clients are expected to remain with other agents in the company, sources said. None of the company’s most prominent clients left in the wake of the FBI probe, which included the arrest of an ex-employee, Christian Dawkins, in September.
It will be interesting to see whether or not Porzingis ends up staying with ASM or if he signs with another agency.
No matter who’s Porzingis’ next agent, his main objective will be to make sure he keeps his client happy, whether that’s re-signing with the Knicks or leaving after his rookie contract is up. At the end of the day, both parties will be making a lot of money.
