Agents Rumors

The N.B.A. is a booming business, and LeBron James is well on his way to cultivating a billion-dollar empire. But actually representing players for their basketball contracts, as opposed to the more lucrative (for agents) sponsorship agreements, doesn’t make much business sense.

Most of those who did represented only a few, little-used substitutes.
