Cassius Stanley Rumors

Jerome Stanley, who ran his own firm and mainly represented NFL players in his career, will co-represent Cassius Stanley with David Bauman, ISE Basketball COO, general counsel of ISE and a veteran NBA player agent.
NBA prospect Cassius Stanley just copped a new piece that would make the Gloved One proud — a diamond pendant of Michael Jackson doing his iconic tilt from the “Smooth Criminal” music video!! TMZ Sports has learned … the projected 1st round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft hit up Clarity Custom Jewelry, a Black-owned business in L.A., to get himself a personal gift before jumping to the pros.
Let’s flash forward 5 years from now — what role in the NBA do you expect to fill? Is there a specific player that you admire and would like to have a career comparable to? Cassius Stanley: I’d like to be a contributing player on a championship team. That’s my goal for five years from now. Individual accolades are great, but they are all opinion-based and voted on, so you don’t have any control over them. I can control how I contribute, how well I play, and the effort I put in. I look at Zach LaVine and Russell Westbrook and I study their games. Their size and athleticism are very comparable to mine. I try to bring the same level of tenacity and aggression as Russell does and I like the way that Zach uses his athleticism to create space and finish plays.
