Wells had been an Atlanta-area NBA agent going back more than a decade, representing players like Dale Davis and Ramon Sessions. But his certification with the NBPA lapsed. Through his friend Anderson, Wells got involved with Williamson’s AAU team, SC Supreme, and the plan had been to have him recertify as an agent and represent Williamson.

Among those were Creative Artists Agency, Roc Nation, Klutch Sports and BDA Sports.
