Headline NBA Players Sports Agents

On To The Next One: Devin Harris

Former Wisconsin guard Devin Harris is in his 6th year in the NBA, currently playing with the New Jersey Nets.  Prior to joining the Nets, Harris was with the Dallas Mavericks.  Harris consistently got better in each of his four seasons with the Mavericks, logging more minutes and points in each successive year.  This year, he is averaging around 15 points and 8 assists in 32 minutes per game.  His assists are at an all time high, but Harris is barely shooting above 40% from the field and his 3-point percentage is sub-30%.

The 5th overall selection in the 2004 NBA Draft has decided to part ways with his now former agent, Henry Thomas of Creative Artists Agency (the same agency that represents Wade, Bosh, and James) in favor of Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports Management.  Harris joins an agency that also represents Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, and Paul Pierce.  From one mega basketball agency to another.
