HoopsHype Rob Pelinka rumors
Dave McMenamin: Forgot to tweet last night: Andre Drummond was at the (Thunder @ Lakers) game with agent Rob Pelinka. Twitter
Last week, I reported that University of Connecticut’s Andre Drummond signed with Rob Pelinka of Landmark Sports Agency. The agent of players like Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, and Carlos Boozer has another potential rookie NBA player signed to his agency. That player is former Syracuse guard Dion Waiters. businessinsider.com
Kevin Durant on Tuesday acknowledged that he has in fact signed with agent Rob Pelinka, who runs Los Angeles-based Landmark Sports Agency. Oklahoman
Pelinka was a member of the University of Michigan men's basketball team in the late 1980s and early '90s and was a teammate of the Wolverines' famed “Fab Five.” Pelinka is best known for representing Lakers guard Kobe Bryant. He also represents Thunder guard James Harden among others, but Durant said Pelinka's ties to Harden didn't weigh into his decision. “Me and James are really, really good friends so of course people will think that,” Durant said. “Rob is just a great worker. I'm happy to have him on my team.” Oklahoman
