“It was very important when I was picking an agent to pick the right fit. I was in a special situation where I was leaving school early and either staying in the draft or going overseas and going back in the draft the following year. Scott and Rize Management showed they had all the necessary contacts and knowledge to guide me through the draft process and overseas market. Scott got me several NBA looks and put me in a great situation overseas in order to play in the NBA in the future.”
