Two West Coast sports executives are suing Comcast-Spectacor L.P. to collect a $2 million finder’s fee that they contend is owed them for helping with the sale of the win-challenged and financially ailing 76ers. Robert Whitsitt, the former president of the Portland Trail Blazers, and Thomas Shine filed the federal breach-of-contract lawsuit in Philadelphia on Tuesday claiming they introduced Comcast-Spectacor chairman Ed Snider and general counsel Philip Weinberg to sports agent Jason Levien, who became part of the group that eventually purchased the Sixers.

Should be interesting to see how this plays out. Sounds like there isn’t a written contract. If there was, I imagine it would be a slam dunk (pun unintended) of a case.
