Immortals seek up to $1m for benched trio - Report
Immortals CEO Noah Whinston has set an asking price of approximately $1 million for Henrique "HEN1" Teles, Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles and Lincoln "fnx" Lau, according to a report from Flickshot.fr and ESPN Esports Brasil.
The North American organisation is currently listening to offers for the benched trio, who have confirmed their intention to link up with free agent Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe and with TeamOne member Bruno "bit" Lima ahead of ELEAGUE Major Boston.
Together, Lucas "LUCAS1" Teles, Henrique "HEN1" Teles and kNgV- represent the core of the Immortals roster that finished runners-up at PGL Major Krakow, which gives them a berth at the next Valve-sponsored event. This has drawn the attention of a number of parties, from private investors to esports organisations, but a deal is nowhere near completion at the moment.
It is reported that some of the team’s suitors are baulking at Immortals’ valuation of LUCAS1, HEN1 and Lincoln "fnx" Lau (as a package deal), and also at Mr. Whinston’s deadline of November 7 for the deal to go through, and as a result they could pull out of negotiations.
Valve has also set a deadline of November 10 for teams with "Legend" status to submit their rosters for the ELEAGUE Major. At this moment, everything points to 100 Thieves losing their spot at the Major if the players are not bought out of their contracts by that date.
Any organisation or investor interested in securing 100 Thieves’ services will also need to reach an agreement with TeamOne for the transfer of bit, who has been moved to a backup position by the Brazilian organisation as he looks to resolve his future.
