New Orleans Pelicans general manager Dell Demps pulled off perhaps the biggest deal of his three-year tenure. He just couldn't talk about it. Demps drafted Kentucky center Nerlens Noel sixth overall and promptly shipped him and a first-round pick in 2014 to the Philadelphia 76ers for All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday and a second-round pick Thursday night. Demps can't comment on the deal until it is officially approved by the NBA about July 11, when the league's new fiscal year starts. But Holiday's agent, Tony Dutt, confirmed the trade.

Darren Heitner: I noted that you are working in conjunction with a start-up agency titled, Rival Sports Group, to represent the Morris twins from Kansas and Tyler Honeycutt from UCLA. How did you form a relationship with Rival Sports Group? What does the relationship entail? Tony Dutt: I am working with Rival Sports Group as a Consultant. I handle all basketball contracts for the company. I must say that so many people try to get into this business and spend alot of money and usually do not succeed for one reason or another, as it is extreamly competitive. I have spent 25 plus years building relationships with owners, general managers, coaches, etc., and I go back to TRUST – it’s developed over time. Rival Sports Group has a lot of business success along with really good people working with them, and I’m really excited about the relationship going forward. Sports Agent Blog
