Earlier this month, Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson terminated his relationship with his agent Leon Rose at Creative Artists Agency (CAA), and many speculated that Lawson would end up signing with basketball agent Happy Walters. Sports Agent Blog has received confirmation from Walters that Lawson is now his client.
Lawson was drafted by Minnesota #18 overall in the 2009 NBA Draft, but the right to that pick was traded to the Denver Nuggets. Lawson has played with the Nuggets ever since (the Nuggets exercised its third and fourth year options on Lawson’s rookie contract).
Recently, there has been talk of the Nuggets offering Lawson a 4-year, $45 million deal. Lawson will have until the end of this month to accept such an offer or will become a restricted free agent in 2013. If Lawson accepts a deal with the terms mentioned, it will allow him to make roughly the same amount of money in 2013 as Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics. Not a bad pick up for Happy Walters.
