Syracuse In The Pros: C.J. Fair Fires Agent, Looking For Guaranteed Deal

The former Orange didn't like that he hasn't earned a guaranteed deal yet.


Former Syracuse Orange forward C.J. Fair went undrafted in the NBA Draft and didn't come out of summer league with a guaranteed deal. He was probably expecting something a little different. Hence, he fired his agent and found a new one.

"He terminated me yesterday,'' Torrel Harris, who had been representing Fair, said Thursday. "I like C.J. I wish the best for him.''

Harris said the Mavericks and a few other NBA teams had extended invitations to their training camps to Fair, but the invites came with no guarantees.

Harris said that he did get C.J. a $200K deal with a European squad but Fair is set on playing in the NBA. C.J. has since signed with agent Joel Bell of the Bell Sports Inc.

C.J. might not have gotten a deal out of the Mavericks but at least he had a good time.

That's all that matters.

That and guaranteed money.
