DeAndre Jordan Fires His Agent

People will eventually forget about the DeAndre Jordan fiasco this summer. Time heals all. But in an apparent attempt to rid himself of all associated with that time, Jordan has decided to fire his agent. Not sure how much impact they had on his last-minute change of heart.

Jordan informed agents Dan Fegan and Jarinn Akana last week that he was moving “in another direction,” said an NBA official not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

Jordan told his agents of his decision to drop them a few days after the NBA fined the Clippers $250,000 on Aug. 25 for violating rules that prohibit teams from offering players unauthorized business or investment opportunities. […] The Clippers committed the violation during their pitch to the free-agent center on July 2. They apparently discussed marketing opportunities that the NBA said included a third-party endorsement deal with Lexus.

Despite leaving Relativity Sports, Jordan still had to pay the agency the 4% it earned when he re-signed with the Clippers for $88 million over four years. […] Jordan now has left three agents in seven seasons – Joel Bell, Wasserman Media Group and now Relativity Sports.
