In about two weeks Clinton Portis is going to be starring in the premiere episode of a new HGTV show called Scoring The Deal. The premise? Basically, a hotshot real estate agent named Jason Abrams travels the country trying to find homes fit for superstar athletes. At least three of them have local ties—Clinton Portis, Greivis Vasquez, and Cato June are all in need of a huge houses pronto and Abrams gets it done for them.
Portis might be the person the HGTV general manager is referring to when she says: "For the first time in all my years at looking at shows for HGTV, I've actually had to pull out shots because of talk about stripper poles." If you recall his McLean mansion came with such an amenity (and it did take a price chop before he could sell it). After the jump we have the six minute promo clip of Cato June who needs to find a pad in New York because he has invested in a Broadway play, plus the full list of athletes who are going to appear in the series.
