What we do know is that Noel is seeking $58 million in lost wages from Paul and Klutch Sports. Noel claims that Paul gave him bad advice that led to him turning down a four-year, $70 million contract from the Dallas Mavericks in favor of a one-year qualifying offer worth $4.1 million.

As for Perkins, there is no evidence that he is actually on Klutch’s payroll. But he is close friends and former teammates with Klutch’s marquee client.
