Headline NBA Players Sports Agents

Who Represents The 2010-11 Champion Dallas Mavericks

The following list displays the Dallas Mavericks’ 15-man roster along with each player’s agent of record.
  • JJ Barea – Dan Fegan (Lagardere Unlimited)
  • Rodrigue Beaubois – Bouna Ndiaye (Comsport)
  • Corey Brewer – Happy Walters (Rogue Sports)
  • Caron Butler – Raymond Brothers
  • Brian Cardinal – Mark Bartelstein (Priority Sports)
  • Tyson Chandler – Jeff Schwartz (Excel Sports)
  • Brendan Haywood – Andy Miller (ASM Sports)
  • Dominique Jones – Mike Hodges
  • Jason Kidd – Jeff Schwartz (Excel Sports)
  • Ian Mahinmi – Bouna Ndiaye (Comsport)
  • Shawn Marion – Dan Fegan (Lagardere Unlimited)
  • Dirk Nowitzki – NOBODY
  • DeShawn Stevenson – Mark Bartelstein (Priority Sports)
  • Peja Stojakovic – David Bauman (DB Hoops)
  • Jason Terry – Dan Fegan (Lagardere Unlimited)

What stands out most is that Dirk Nowitzki is not represented by anyone.  Yesterday, Bloomberg Sports released a video explaining Nowitzki’s representation situation (embedded below).  Nowitzki does not have an agent or a business manager, but he does apparently have a friend in Germany who advises him on contracts.
