Only The BEST For Donte

All you dreamers and conspiracy theorists can officially give up hope (and stop posting on message boards telling us what your "sources" have said), Donte Greene is lining himself up with an agent. He hasn't signed...yet.

According to a source close to Greene, the freshman forward from Syracuse has interviewed prospective agents. The source said Greene will eventually sign with noted player representative Bill Strickland, who is part of the Louisville-based Blue Equity agency. Blue Equity recently merged its sports and entertainment properties and formed Blue Entertainment Sports Television (BEST).

The source indicated that Greene has not yet officially signed on with Strickland and Blue Equity. However, the website lists Greene as a primary client of Strickland's.

Strickland's most notable client is Rasheed Wallace but he also reps Corey Brewer and Brevin Knight.

According to
his bio, "Bill was the first African-American agent to be named by The Sporting News to its list of the "100 Most Powerful People in Sports." He has also been recognized by Black Enterprise Magazine as one of the "50 Most Powerful African-Americans in Sports." So he's doing very well, thank you very much.

Go forth, Mr. Greene. When next we meet, it will not be on the court in the Carrier Dome, but in a carefully-organized media event that capitalizes on the interconnectivity of all the core marketing channel.
