Stephen Curry has signed a 4-year, $44 million extension with the Golden State Warriors. If his agent takes a 4% commission on the total contract, that agent will receive $1.76 million. But who will be the agent that collects the commissions on the deal? The cause for confusion is that basketball agent Lance Young recently left Octagon and its basketball division, and is expected to join Jeff Schwartz’s Excel Sports Management. Sports Agent Blog
