I'm introducing a new feature to the league that I'm calling, "Whispers".
Dealing with rumors is a big part of being a GM.
From time-to-time, you may be approached by a player, a player agent, a coach or a draft prospect. That person might want to talk about playing time, a possible extension, a trade request, etc.
Sometimes, the person will be nice enough to come to you in private first, before going to the press.
Some people, however, are not so considerate.
Of course, you shouldn't believe everything you read...
