I was curious how many white Americans are represented by Black agents. has a directory of NBA agents so I went through and identified the race of every agent that represents one of the 39 white American players in the NBA. I defined “American” as any player that was born in the USA, according to the NBA. That means Domantas Sabonis and Isaiah Hartenstein are included here even though I don’t think either player identifies exclusively as an American. From what I can tell, Frank Kaminsky and Luke Kornet are the only white Americans with Black agents. Kaminsky is represented by Bill Duffy of BDA Sports Management while Kornet is represented by both Jim Tanner (who is Black) and Matt Laczkowski (who is white) of Tandem Sports and Entertainment. The other 37 white American players in the NBA are all represented by white agents.

Celtics don't plan to waive Luke Kornet right away

Adam Himmelsbach: Was told that the Celtics do not have plans to immediately waive Luke Kornet. With Theis gone and Tristan Thompson still out, they might even need some reinforcements in the short term. But with the shortened season, the buyout market could get rolling quickly.
