Good update on the team meeting with Kevin Pritchard’s agent in Vegas. But the interesting part is below:

Of course, Bower would not have begun preliminary calls to gauge Paul’s trade value without the approval of ownership, and league sources maintain that the desire to determine Paul’s trade value came from new proposed majority owner Gary Chouest, who continues negotiations with current owner George Shinn on a transfer. Sources say that if Shinn does not complete the sale of the team to Chouest that Shinn will not trade Paul under any circumstances.

Did Chouest decide to can Bower for shopping Paul after telling him to do so?

Strange turn for a strange off-season.
