“It was very important when I was picking an agent to pick the right fit. I wanted to sign with an agency where I felt like I was a priority. The moment I signed with Scott and Rize I felt like a top priority. Within two weeks of signing, Scott secured a very high level job for me as a rookie. Scott and his team have extensive contacts in the NBA and overseas.”
