FALK SAYS MJ NOT DONE YET: STILL SEEKING "APPROPRIATE" DEALS
Michael Jordan "would consider additional endorsement
opportunities," although his agent, David Falk, said that
anything he would agree to would have to be "a perfect fit,"
according to Pete Coates of BLOOMBERG NEWS. Falk disputed a
story in yesterday's Chicago Tribune that reported Jordan
"had put a freeze on additional endorsement contracts." The
story quoted FAME's Estee Portnoy as saying they were "not
actively pursuing" any new deals for Jordan. Falk said that
the quote was "taken out of context" and is "not accurate."
Falk: "I am continually searching for opportunities I think
would be appropriate for Michael. We certainly are going to
be selective." Falk said there are some areas that he has
"been actively pursing" over the past two years, although he
would not disclose further details (BLOOMBERG NEWS, 8/19).
