Agent: Bobcats Annoyed with Hudson
The agent for NBA free-agent guard Lester Hudson said Hudson is no longer a client after failing to show up for a workout with the Charlotte Bobcats.
Tyler Glass, of Off The Glass Entertainment, responded to reports Hudson had dropped the agency. Instead, Glass told FOX Sports Ohio on Tuesday, it’s the other way around.
“We let HIM go,” Glass said. “It happened about a month ago. He had a workout scheduled with the Bobcats. He didn’t go. He said he didn’t receive his hotel information quickly enough.”
According to Glass, Hudson drew immediate interest from teams seeking backcourt help, but was waiting for the right deal. Glass said he spent the summer scheduling workouts for Hudson, including the one with the Bobcats.
“The Bobcats ended up eating a ticket for $750,” Glass said. “I worked so hard to get him a workout, and he didn’t show. The Bobcats were annoyed and they should have been. They’re a professional organization. You don’t skip out on workouts.”
“The knock on Lester is he’s kind of an undersized (shooting) guard,” Glass said. “I think he’s proved he can play point guard. He really can play in the league. But what happened with the Bobcats … word gets around.”
