There's nothing wrong with it.
It's the benefit of hiring an agent.
He has connections and relationships that should benefit him and his team.
He knows which teams are unhappy with players, and which players are coveted by opposing teams.
He will likely never know more about his current landscape -- in terms of who is available and not -- than he does right now; he should move as fast as possible.
As for how the experiment works, we'll see.
Lots of people stayed far away from that job due to the awful ownership.
