Knicks center Norrence Knoll sued LeBron James’ agent Rich Paul and his company Klutch Sports, claiming that he lost $58 million in potential salary during the 2017-20 season when he was represented by Paul.
The lawsuit alleges that Paul did not prioritize Noel and “hardly did any work for him.”
Noel claimed that Paul advised him to abandon the Dallas Mavericks’ $70 million offer in 2017 and accept a one-year contract so that he can become an unrestricted free agent next season and get a larger share. Contracts.
Noel did as he suggested, but in the following season he broke his thumb. Because his numbers plummeted, he missed 42 games.
The following season, he signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder and continued to make small transactions until this summer he signed a three-year, $27.8 million contract with the New York Knicks.
According to ESPN, before Noel took legal action, Crouch recently filed a complaint with the National Basketball Players Association, claiming that Noel had not paid $200,000 in commission for his previous year’s contract with the Knicks.
Rich Paul did not comment publicly on Noel’s lawsuit.
