Rob Pelinka


Okay, I don't really know what to make of this but have you noticed that the Clippers have put away all the players under contract who have been under Rob Pelinka?

First and foremost, most of us know that Pelinka is the agent for Kobe Bryant, the one who got Kobe those massive deals. Kobe is right now the highest paid player in the NBA. Pelinka represented Corey Maggette, Eric Gordon and Chris Kaman.

Right now in the wake that Gordon rejected an extension by the Hornets while he's injured and hasn't shown he could play for an extended period of time, most of us believe trading him was a smart move. I do find that the fact we moved both Kaman and Gordon, who had Pelinka as an agent is something to note. The team has talked a lot lately about high character guys and such, but now perhaps this agent game or behind the scenes game also takes shape.

If a player has a problem agent, move him. Pelinka wanted a higher deal for Gordon, and in some ways an agent demanding high value for his player is his job but couldn't that also ruin team chemistry if the player believes the team is not paying him what he's worth. Think Shawn Marion with the Suns and how he was eventually moved to the Heat.
