Is Paradigm Buying UTA?

There’s a rumor floating around that Paradigm, thanks to Sam Gores and his brothers, is going to buy UTA. UTA’s been hemorrhaging agents and others lately (like Nick Stevens and Ben Stiller), according to Nikki Finke, and her commenters are mentioning Paradigm, as well. (Of course, one poster points out that Paradigm can barely pay the electric bill.)

Remember when Paradigm bought Writers & Artists Agency?

Of course, the most important question is what will happen to the much-coveted UTA job list?
