Portland guard Gerald Henderson and the Mavericks’ Raymond Felton have both decided to drop Wasserman Media Group as their representation. Both guards have now signed with Tandem Sports & Entertainment. Veteran agent Jim Tanner founded Tandem in 2013 after building an extremely successful talent representation practice at law firm Williams & Connolly.
In addition to making the jump from Wasserman to Tandem, Felton and Henderson were also 1st round draft picks by the Charlotte Hornets in 2005 and 2009 respectively. It’s surprising to see this many things in common between two former North Carolina and Duke basketball players.
Jim Tanner is one of the premier agents in basketball. Tanner represents some of the top players in NBA history such as Tim Duncan, Ray Allen, Grant Hill and Dominique Wilkins. Felton and Henderson join John Henson and Jeremy Lin as some of Tanner’s more recent signings. Look out for Tandem Sports to continue to add NBA starters to their client list.
