Falk: Players Should be Allowed to Vote
Agents, even the more moderate ones, expect the players to reject the N.B.A.’s offer Monday, without putting it to a membership vote. Few think that it would get approval from a majority of the 430 or so players. But given the circumstances, at least one influential agent said that a vote was now essential.
“I think it would be a complete abdication of responsibility as agents for anyone to suggest that the players as a group shouldn’t vote on whatever the final proposal is,” said David Falk, a former agent for Michael Jordan and Patrick Ewing.
Falk has nine clients, including Toney Douglas, the Knicks’ player representative.
