(“THIS MAN IS A BONAFIDE SCRUB!”)
Phew. Kwame Brown’s agent is saying Brown is unlikely to sign with the Boston Celtics. (CSNNE)
“We’re probably going in another direction,” said his agent, Mark Bartelstein.
Money, of course.
The Celtics have nothing more than the veteran’s minimum to offer Brown.
There are a number of teams that can not only offer more money, but like the Celtics, they too are built for a deep playoff run.
“Kwame has some very interesting options to weigh,” Bartelstein said. “Like I said, I think we’ll have something done within the next couple of days. You never say never, because things can change quickly. But I just don’t think it’s going to work out with Boston.”
Some poor NBA team out there is going to be paying Kwame Brown more than the veteran’s minimum. Suckers. But hey, if Johan Petro is worth three years and $10 million then somebody’s definitely going to show Brown the money. This free agent market is on drugs.
And yet somehow the Grizzlies are reportedly close to signing TA for only $3 million per year? It doesn’t add up.
