has signed a representation agreement with Excel Sports Management President Jeff Schwartz, ESMs Vice President Sam Goldfeder told DraftExpress today. Its a done deal, Goldfeder said in a phone conversation this afternoon.
The freshman from Arizona had announced his intentions to enter the draft during Final Four weekend ten days ago, but did not rush into signing with an agent until now. He is projected to be selected anywhere from 3-7 according to numerous NBA executives weve spoken with, largely depending on the final order of the drafted lottery, which will be decided on May 20th.
The LA based Schwartz is considered one of the top agents in the NBA today, with a star-studded client list including players such as Jason Kidd
