Rich Paul’s elite NBA sports agency has added Los Angeles Lakers goalie Kendrick Nunn to their all-star roster, a move that shows confidence in Nunn’s talent.
Rich Paul’s rise from selling vintage sports jerseys to one of the NBA’s most exclusive talent agencies is almost unbelievable – as is the number of Lakers Paul now represents.
Paul’s agency Klutch Sports Group on Wednesday added Lakers goalie Kendrick Nunn to their all-star roster on Wednesday.
Nunn, who was not drafted in the 2018 NBA Draft, is a 26-year-old Miami Heat star who is expected to play an important role in another Lakers title hunt.
Rich Paul and Klutch Sports Group sign Lakers goaltender Kendrick Nunn
Nunn joins his Lakers teammates LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Talen Horton-Tucker as clients of Paul’s Lakers, but the fast-growing agency has signed with some of the biggest names in the NBA.
Older veterans and young freaks round out the Klutch Sports Group customer base. John Wall, Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green are all clients, as are Lonzo Ball and Anthony Edwards. With only three years of experience, Nunn is one of the agency’s greenest players, which makes his signing even more powerful as a young Laker.
Nunn signed with the Lakers on August 6, after two years of showing off his skills with the Miami Heat. His NBA debut went off in style when he broke Heat and NBA records in his first appearances. Nunn has been Heat’s most scoring preseason player for the past 20 years, and his total of 112 points in his first five NBA games broke the record for most undrafted player. After his two years with the Heat, Nunn averages 15 points and three assists per game.
Still, the Lakers put him on a cheap two-year contract worth only $ 10.5 million. The biggest news out of signing Klutch Sports is that Nunn will finally get the contract he deserves in 2023.
