Pure speculation from Amico. Just says there’s “been speculation”.

If he does then he does. We can engage him in an extension and then if Rich Paul is being Rich Paul we start to look for a trade partner. It is what it is.

Well at least he won’t want to go to the Lakers.

Rich Paul will only be around so long. Once LeBron is gone, Rich Paul will be soon after.


The guy isn’t all that bright and he’ll end up fricking over a client and daddy LeBron won’t be around to save him

I say that Lonzo Ball can do whatever he wants to do and sign with whomever he desires. Just if he does sign with Lebron and Co., I wish him well on his new team (not).

You would trade ball if he signed with Klutch?

Lmao.

Yep. Rich Paul is a cancer and he needs to be banned from our team.

I would not oppose it. Rich Paul is fricking slime. After the bull shite he pulled with AD, he is completely toxic in New Orleans. I really like what Lonzo is becoming but Zion may be the only player on the team worth allowing LeBonk's puppet around our locker room.

I really like the new and improved Zo, but Rich Paul is a deal breaker. Zo needs to sign with CAA and get Gatorade and Jordan sponsorships and not potato chips deals.

Remember, Griff and Rich Paul have a pretty good relationship. It was Rich Paul and Dell Demps that got pissy with each other during the trade talks. I don't think this will impact us much tbh.

Considering Klutch has screwed more clients than not I have no clue why anyone would want to sign with them at this point. The only thing they did that people from the outside could see being slightly positive is he delivered AD to the Lakers, but you could write a book on how not to handle a trade demand in the process.

You should be. I don't think the risk is he's going to make Lonzo leave, this is a good situation for him and Rich Paul. What you should be afraid of is that Rich Paul has very regularly over played his leverage, often to the detriment of both his client and the team he's negotiating with.

If Lonzo signs with Rich Paul I'd fear him holding out for a max contract. Even if you call his bluff and don't over pay Lonzo, he'd probably come into that season out of sync from not being in training camp. This is a real threat because Rich Paul is a bad agent that has probably screwed as many clients as he's "helped" with LeBron's leverage.

The only good deals he has gotten is when Lebron had the direct leverage, as you say. He's a pretty shitty agent otherwise.

Any player that signs with that two bit hustler makes me question them, which means maybe we don't actually want them.

I'm not saying at all trade Lonzo if he signs with him, but it does raise alarm bells and makes you AT LEAST start gauging interest from other teams, just in case.

If rich paul is involved with Zo, then Zo can go.

Draymond Green got a max in GS, Simmons got a big deal too.

Both had leverage on teams trying to remain/become contenders. How did things work out for Nerlens Noel and Norris Cole? Again, the problem is he seems to quite frequently miscalculate/ignore the amount of leverage he has in a situation.

I would trade him. He is worth what he is worth. For the team's sake, trade him. Rich Paul and his showing up at games and escorting players to planes for dramatic affect is a joke. Lonzo Ball would need to be replaced.

Oh, and I do like Lonzo Ball's game. Building a basketball culture in New Orleans could never include Rich Paul.

I am ok trading Lonzo for a top 5 pick or a young, promising player. Don’t see us keeping 3 max guys in Ingram, Jrue, and Lonzo. Rather keep Ingram & Jrue...I don’t see Zo being on a Championship team while making the max!

Ball is still on his 1st deal, he won't hold out.

And when he hits free agency we can just match any deal he would get if we want.

If he goes to Klutch, it's not a big deal. He's only switching agents as his agent is now with the Knicks
