Elgin Baylor Worked without Contract; Lawsuit to Come?


Though many of the details remain unclear, several pieces of information emerged. Sources with knowledge of the situation who were not authorized to comment publicly said that Baylor had been working without a contract since the early 1990s, having been told that one was not necessary.

Now it appears Baylor is gearing up for a battle, hiring attorney Carl Douglas and employment law specialist Alvin Pittman.

"Elgin gave 22 years of his life to the Clippers and it’s regrettable they are trying to put him out to pasture in this way," Douglas said.
