Testimonial
"Prior to joining Rize Management, I was with a big sized agency but I wasn’t getting the personal attention I needed. I felt like I got lost in the shuffle. Upon signing with Scott he got my name back on the NBA radar. Whether its the NBA or playing basketball overseas, or just day to day needs Scott and his staff at Rize Management have always been there for me. Scott has very strong contacts in the NBA and with the higher paying teams overseas. After I joined Rize I felt right away this was a much better fit for me."
