Monte McNair Rumors

Rich Paul: But on the flip side, I think it’s been said—I’m not saying it, I think people have said it, and I think people feel it—that Klutch Sports Group is the most culturally relevant agency. And so when a player signs with Klutch, especially a player at a level of De’Aaron Fox, number one, it’s a shock, number two, it’s like, “Oh, they got another high level, All-Star-caliber guy.” And then number three, in his case, he was already playing with confidence. He’s already been a guy to fill up the stat sheet. They just wasn’t winning.  Getting someone like Mike Brown, who’s a championship coach, and then [front office executives] Monte McNair and Wes Wilcox putting some guys on the floor that want to play every night, this is what you get. And for De’Aaron, it’s: “I feel great. I got a baby on the way. I’m married, I got a beautiful wife. I’m playing high-level basketball. We’re winning. It’s great. Why would I want to leave that?”
A few of Fox’s peers also attended the wedding including Sacramento Kings general manager Monte McNair and Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum. Former Kentucky Wildcats Bam Adebayo and Wenyen Gabriel, who was also Fox’s teammate in Sacramento, attended the wedding. Adebayo and Gabriel were two of the groomsmen at the ceremony.
