Over the weekend, Houston Rockets forward and former Florida Gator Chandler Parsons sent the following Tweet:
Shoutout to my dude @RealDealBeal23 for joining the @PrioritySports family.
@RealDealBeal23 is former Florida Gator and soon-to-be NBA Draft lottery pick Bradley Beal. Beal will join Parsons and David Lee of the Golden State Warriors as Priority Sports clients who are on NBA rosters at the start of the 2012/13 season.
Roughly a month ago, Bradley Beal decided that he was leaving the University of Florida after his freshman season in order to take his talents to the NBA as soon as possible. At that point in time, Beal decided against rushing into a decision regarding who would be representing him leading up to the NBA Draft. He said that he expected to sit down with two or three agents that Gators’ coach Billy Donovan recommends and interview them prior to signing with an agent. It is not surprising that Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports would be on Donovan’s short-list based on the strong work he has done on behalf of other Gators such as Parsons and Lee.
