Larry Sanders went from raw rookie to double-double shot-blocking sensation in just three years with the Milwaukee Bucks. His first year was such a disaster, his agents at Relativity Sports dumped him. ASM Sports picked him up. And Sanders, a string bean from VCU, quickly blossomed into a nice player, one worthy of an extension from the Bucks.
That’s when Relativity Sports decided they wanted Sanders back. According to a lawsuit filed by ASM (via the NY Post), Relativity stole back Sanders by making promises to his ex-girlfriend (which weren’t kept) and his childhood friend. It’s probably standard-issue stuff in this business, but for it to be detailed in a lawsuit is pretty rare. [The entire lawsuit is below.]
