    The Tyler Skaggs Cases; Nerlens Noel sues NBA Mega-Agent Rich Paul for $58M

    The Tyler Skaggs Cases; Nerlens Noel sues NBA Mega-Agent Rich Paul for $58M

    We are joined by special guest Nathan Fenno (@NathanFenno), Sports Enterprise Reporter for the Los Angeles Times. Nathan has been closely covering the investigation into the tragic passing of Los Angeles Angels’ Pitcher Tyler Skaggs in 2019 from an apparent drug overdose and the civil / criminal cases that resulted. Suddenly, these cases are at the center of the Sports Law world with a trial fast approaching, reports that 5 baseball players might testify, plus allegations that the L.A. Angles are not complying with federal prosecutors’ investigation. We break down all aspects of a story that could rock the organization… and the sport.
    The ROADMAP:
    3:07 - Nerlens Noel v. Rich Paul & Klutch Sports. When a player sues one of the most influential agents in all of basketball, you must stop and analyze. This new $58M lawsuit touches upon an alleged breach of an agent’s duty to act in his client’s best interests. Noel, now a member of the New York Knicks, alleges that in 2017 Paul advised him to turn down a $70M - 4 Year deal from the Dallas Mavericks to try and strike even bigger as a true free agent so he could turn him into a “$100 million man.” However, this $100M contract never materialized. Instead, Noel claims he was forced to sign a series of near-minimum deals over the next few years because of Paul’s mishandling and apparent indifference to his financial interests — as opposed to some of the agent’s bigger names: LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Trae Young, etc.
    13:49 - The Tyler Skaggs Cases. Nathan Fenno joins the show to break down the various cases stemming from the death of Tyler Skaggs in 2019. We discuss the status of the federal investigation into his death, the upcoming trial, the other players involved, and what this means for the Angels & MLB moving forward.
    46:28 - WHAT TO WATCH FOR: College Football’s new “Alliance” between the ACC, BIG TEN, and PAC 12… following up on our 7/13 podcast Rachel Nichols is on her way OUT at ESPN we revisit the legal liability to the network… the establishment of our new sports law job board courtesy of attorney Matthew Haage, Conduct Detrimental new “Jobs Contributor”!!!

Great Podcast!

I love the concept of the law and sports angle! Sports has lost most of my friends and family since the political takeover constantly insults them. That being said I think the legal aspect of it all is well articulated and analyzed extremely well by these lawyers. Check this podcast out everyone..it is brilliant!
