College Basketball Players Headline Sports Agents

Agent Selection Scenarios: San Diego State Basketball

The San Diego State Aztecs are not an NCAA Basketball powerhouse.  Needless to say, SDSU cannot brag about having a bunch of former players make it to the NBA.  In fact, hardly any SDSU alumni have played professionally, even excluding the NBA.  But let’s give some love to the #2 seed in the West Region.  Here are some of the former SDSU players that have made it in the pro ranks in the past.

  • Michael Cage – Can’t find an agent name, but he still is the most successful NBA player to come out of SDSU.
  • Brandon Heath – Chris Emens (Octagon). Plays for APOEL B.C. of Cyprus.
  • Randy Holcomb – Danny Davis (PTI Sports). Selected by the Spurs with the 57th pick in the 2002 Draft.
  • Marcus Slaughter – Sam Goldfeder (Excel Sports). Originally represented by Dan Fegan, who is now with Lagardere Unlimited.

San Diego State has a stud who should certainly be an NBA Draft pick, and I happen to believe that he enters this Draft, even though he is only a Sophomore.  Kawhi Leonard could be a first rounder if he does decide to leave this year, and may even be a Lottery Pick.  His Draft stock may never be higher than it is right now, which is why I think he ends up leaving SDSU.  But who will rep him?  Will Sam Goldfeder and Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports have the best shot?  Is Dan Fegan back around campus hoping to land another SDSU client?  This one seems to really be up for grabs.
