Andy Miller of ASM Sports agency is suing the current agent of his ex-client, and Milwaukee Bucks defensive specialist, Larry Sanders. The claim is very simple. Larry Sanders just made big bucks (no pun) by re-signing with the Bucks, and his former agent (Miller) missed out on the payday, and is seeking more than $6.6 million in damages. Sanders recently inked a $41 million contract extension. The claim is that Sanders was poached away by a Beverly Hills firm, Relativity Sports. This from the New York Post: Miller claims his firm picked up Sanders after Relativity dumped him following a disastrous rookie season. Sanders was relegated to the bench for most of 2010-’11 and even suffered the indignity of demotion to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA’ s D-League. “Miller helped re-shape Sanders’ attitude toward his physical conditioning,” according to the lawsuit. “Miller made sure that Sanders’ attitude in other areas improved, most notably decreasing the amount of time that Sanders spent partying.” Miller makes these claims, and adds that Sanders was lured back to Relativity Sports by money/perks, which is illegal. Players are allowed to switch agents, but collective bargaining rules say that a player can not be lured in with luxuries or cash. Per the New York Post: “Through the use of private planes, celebrity encounters and hedonistic parties,” the Manhattan Supreme Court suit claims, Relativity poached Sanders after Miller’s firm turned him from bust to break out star, according to the Manhattan Supreme Court filing. Sounds fishy, but also sounds like Miller is just burnt by missing out on a nice payday. The post NBA agent suing ex-client’s current agent appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.
