On To The Next One: Ramon Sessions

Congratulations to Jared Karnes and the rest of the team at Allegiant Athletic Agency (a3) on the signing of Ramon Sessions as a client with regards to the negotiation of team contracts and marketing opportunities.  Sessions was previously represented by Atlanta-based agent James Wells.

Under Sessions’ current contract, he is scheduled to make $4.26 million in 2011/12 and has a player option to make $4.55 million in 2012/13.  He is currently playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers.  Sessions will certainly have a much different role with the Cavaliers now that Kyrie Irving is a Cav.  Karnes and a3 will likely be busy trying to find a new home for their newest client.
