Headline NBA Teams Sports Agents

On To The Next One: Isaiah Thomas

Isaiah Thomas was the final pick of the 2011 NBA Draft, selected by the Sacramento Kings.  The 5’9 Thomas played his college ball at Washington prior to entering the NBA.  Originally, Thomas was represented by Byron Irvin and Dan Fegan of Lagardere Unlimited.  However, he recently parted ways from those agents and is now represented by Andy Miller of ASM Sports.

Miller has to like Thomas’s production in his rookie campaign.  He was named the Western Conference Rookie of the Month in February, which marked the first time that the last pick of an NBA Draft has ever won the award in the history of the NBA.  That said, Thomas is on year one of his rookie deal, so it is likely that it will be some time before Miller receives a commission on a new Thomas contract.
