Report: Bregman fires agent over link to LeBron documentary

Houston Astros star Alex Bregman has parted ways with his agent over a link to LeBron James’ plans to produce a documentary that will delve into the Astros’ sign-stealing scandal, The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reported.Bregman’s now former agent, Brodie Scoffield, just last month became the baseball arm to James’ agency, Klutch Sports. Last week it was announced that a production company co-founded by James, Uninterrupted, is in talks to help produce a docu-series called “Sign Language,” which would give “viewers an inside look at the Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal.”Bregman felt “angry and betrayed” enough by the association, even though Scoffield has nothing to do with the documentary, to move on from the agent and Klutch Sports, citing a conflict of interest.However, Rosenthal also reported that the link was the culmination of frustrations Bregman reportedly had with Scoffield, including the agent’s guidance during the controversy and the five-year, $100 million extension he negotiated for Bregman in March 2019.
