Potential #1 overall selection in the 2011 NBA Draft, Kyrie Irving, has officially signed with an agent, and it is not a name you might guess on your first try. In fact, you may not even get it right after your fifth try. Irving has selected Jeffrey Wechsler of 24/7 Sports Management as his agent. The following was Tweeted by Larry Hughes and Re-Tweeted by Irving, himself.
24/7 Sports Management is based in Coral Gables, Florida. The company also represents Quentin Richardson and D.J. White. Irving becomes Wechsler’s first client from Duke University, which has been a hotbed of talented basketball players for many years. It is likely that Wechsler had to beat out the likes of Wasserman Media Group, BDA Sports, Landmark Sports Agency, FAME, Priority Sports, and Williams & Connolly in order to win the right to represent Irving. Congratulations are due for Wechsler and 24/7 Sports Management.
