While Priority Sports & Entertainment was one of the more successful agencies in the 2011 NFL Draft (representing a total of 13 Draft picks), the company also has a strong and growing Basketball division run by Mark Bartelstein, Brad Ames, Aaron Mintz, and Reggie Brown. Priority Sports’ recent move to partner with Hoops Internacional will help Priority expand its services offered and make it a more ‘global’ athlete representation company.
The partnership will allow Priority Sports to expand its reach into the Spanish basketball market and provide Hoops Internacional a friend in the United States. Priority Sports already represents many players in Spain, including Alan Anderson and Joe Ingles (FC Barcelona), Jaycee Carroll (Gran Canaria), Nik Caner-Medley (Estudiantes), James Augustine (Valencia), and Robert Archibald (Malaga). Hoops Internacional also represents players in Spain in addition to its one NBA client: Jose Manuel Calderon of the Toronto Raptors.
