Testimonial
“Scott works quickly and is the hardest working agent I know. He cares a lot about his clients and it shows in his level of commitment to each of them. Scott and his team at Rize definitely know how to showcase my talent and are very good at getting the right people to look at me. He really understands how to get in the NBA and also how to stick in the NBA. When it comes to the overseas market I know that if needed Scott will be able to get me the highest paid jobs out there. He not only communicates with me well but also with my entire family.”
