Hustle

NBA talent scout Stanley Sugerman (Adam Sandler) is loyal to his beloved Philadelphia 76ers, and is reputation is respected throughout the industry.  However, he’s burning the candle at both ends and he’s growing more restless towards the required travelling that keeps him away from his family.  Management is rearranged, as well as Stanley’s brief raise, and the pressure is on to find the next big star.
