Kennedy: Agent Suggests He Will Boycott Blazers Because Of Paul Allen

Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld.com reports that one player agent is particularly upset about the conduct of hard-line owners, including Portland Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen, during the ongoing labor negotiations.

But fans aren't the only ones upset with these owners. Players and agents are just as frustrated, and one agent tells HOOPSWORLD that they'll remember their actions long after the lockout comes to an end.

"I don't want any of my clients playing for Michael Jordan, Paul Allen, Robert Sarver, Dan Gilbert or Peter Holt," said one agent. "We won't sign with them, unless they're willing to really overpay. That's going to be the only way these hardline owners are going to land any free agents after the way they've handled these negotiations."

Zach Lowe of SI.com reacts...

This sentiment has been bubbling up over the last few days. Frankly, I find it laughable. Wait until the Bobcats, Suns, Cavaliers, Blazers or whichever "hard-line" club you choose has cap room and an attractive nucleus.
