“Starting from the moment I signed with Scott and Rize Management they have shown me a lot of personal attention. As a rookie I did not know much, Scott really navigated me step by step through the NBA draft process and the overseas market. Even though I am from Europe and Rize is based in the USA, Scott’s connections overseas are vast, and he and his team have the power and contacts to place me anywhere in the world!”
