Sam Permut Rumors
Roc Nation signed Texas Tech guard Jahmi’us Ramsey, who is ranked No. 24: Washington power forward/center Isaiah Stewart, who is ranked No. 26; and Kentucky guard Immanuel Quickley, who is ranked No. 35 by nbadraft.net. Additionally, Roc Nation signed Temple forward Quinton Rose, American University guard Sa’eed Nelson and Indiana guard Devonte Green, brother of Los Angeles Lakers guard/forward Danny Green. Agents Brothers, Drew Gross and Sam Permut are representing the players.
Myles Powell has signed with agent Sam Permut of Roc Nation Sports — the same agent who represents Angel Delgado and Isaiah Whitehead — to represent him as he tests the NBA draft waters. Under the new rule, he has until May 29 to take his name out of the draft to maintain his college eligibility.
Ahead of his free agency, Burke switched agents last month from Toronto-based Mike George to Sam Permut of New York-based Roc Nation. “Timing was very, very important for me,” Burke said. “It was already something I was kind of thinking about doing but a lot of people may look at it and think that my past agent Mike George that he wasn’t doing his job but that wasn’t the case at all. “I just believe what I’m looking for in my career and where I’m trying to go, I feel like Roc Nation was a better fit for me, if that makes sense. Obviously being here in New York, Mike being in Toronto, I just felt like it made more sense. It wasn’t an easy decision. I think a lot of people look at it like he fired his agent. That’s one of the hardest things to do especially when you have a good relationship with your agent so I just think it’s the best fit for me and it’s a decision I wanted to make for my career. I knew if I wanted to make it I knew I didn’t want it to prolong throughout the season and be something on my mind. I wanted to get it done right then and there.”
Roc Nation Sports has signed three players for representation in this year’s NBA draft, including Villanova guard Josh Hart. Roc Nation also signed Florida State forward Dwayne Bacon and Oregon forward/center Chris Boucher. Joe Branch will represent Hart, Roger Montgomery will represent Bacon and Sam Permut will represent Boucher.
