College Basketball Players Headline Sports Agents

Miles Plumlee Signs With Mark Bartelstein Of Priority Sports & Entertainment

It was just a matter of time before Miles Plumlee selected his agent.  Plumlee is finishing his senior year at Duke University, where he played four years as a power forward/center, helping his team win a National Championship in 2010.  While it is currently unknown whether his younger brother, Mason, will enter his name into the 2012 NBA Draft (the NBA does not require student-athletes to declare for the Draft until April 29, 2012), we do know that Miles has signed with Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports & Entertainment. ranks Miles Plumlee as the 37th best NCAA Senior and does not place him on its 2012 NBA Mock Draft. has Plumlee as the 42nd best Senior player as of this posting (although it also fails to list anybody at #38 on that list).  Plumlee may be on the outside looking in when discussing his potential to make an NBA team; however, at 6’10, his options overseas (or in the D-League, if he chooses to go in that direction), should almost be limitless.
