Headline NBA Players Sports Agents

On To The Next One: Wilson Chandler

Wilson Chandler, the 3rd year New York Knicks forward from DePaul University, has made a switch of representation.  He was formerly represented by Chris Luchey of CGL Sports.  I’m still a big fan of Luchey’s website – at least it is different than the run of the mill sports agency webpage.

Prior to starting up his own firm, Luchey was a Senior Manager of Client Services at Wasserman Media Group, and before that, Director of Player Personnel/Scouting at SFX Sports Group.  The first link on his LinkedIN page is a link to an article about Wilson Chandler’s stock rising.  That needs to be changed, pronto.

As for Chandler, RealGM reports that he is considering Dan Fegan, Arn Tellem, Leon Rose, Andy Miller, and Happy Walters as his new agent.  Tellem would be a stinger, as he is the head honcho at WMG (Luchey’s old firm).  Walters would be an interesting choice – he is the man behind Amar’e Stoudemire.
