But as happens when a powerful agent leaves an agency, there have been talent defections. Since Tellem departed, seven NBA players — LaMarcus Aldridge, Jamal Crawford, Danilo Gallinari, Gerald Henderson, Al Horford, Joe Johnson and Jabari Parker — have left. Two others, Mike Miller and Mike Dunleavy, left while Tellem was still at Wasserman. And two others, brothers Marc and Pau Gasol, remain Wasserman clients but are evaluating options.
Storyline: Agent Changes
How much has the loss of Arn Tellem impacted the agency life? Makhtar N’Diaye: Yes, the loss of Arn is huge. It’s like a team that loses his franchise player. It’s normal that there are some collateral damages. Every player had his own reason to leave us. When Arn left us, some players felt like orphans. Arn did take care himself of Joe Johnson. It’s the same thing for Gasol brothers, but we signed the last contract of Marc and we will still be paid for that. If you look deeper, the two losses which hurt us a lot are Jabari Parker because he’s young and has a tremendous potential, and Al Horford because his contract is expiring and he is a max contract player.
Storyline: Agent Changes
“He’s been a great listener,” Johnson said of Hollis-Jefferson. “He works hard, he’s always asking questions. He’s a sponge. He wants to soak up everything. Anything I try and tell him he’s always listening, and then he’s trying to soak it up and ask more questions and more questions. That’s the positive thing about him at this point. “I love it because I want to see the growth and the maturity in him as a player, because obviously the upside is great. His athleticism is through the roof, and I want to be able to help him grow as a player.“If I can do that, I feel like I’ve helped somebody’s career. That’s what I’m trying to do.”
