Mitch Kupchak says recent Lakers rumors were agent-drivenPosted by Inside Hoops
Mark Heisler of the Los Angeles Times reports:
In a rare show of exasperation after a week of seeing his players’ names in headlines, Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak zinged an unnamed agent, whose identity was obvious.
“A lot of the stuff you read the last three or four days was agent-driven,” said Kupchak.
“A lot of times agents these days think the way to consummate a trade is to suggest publicly ideas that they come up with and I think that’s part of the problem, as well.”
Kupchak also noted that a “prominent media member” started this, saying they should “blow up” the team.
That was none other than … Magic Johnson, former Lakers icon and part-owner.
