Evolution Management + Marketing Signs Rakim Sanders and Hassan Whiteside

Evolution Management + Marketing, a company that I have highlighted in the past based on its marketing for two-time Super Bowl MVP Terry Bradshaw and 2011 NBA Draft pick Enes Kanter, has recently added a couple of new clients in Rakim Sanders and Hassan Whiteside.

Sanders just completed his Senior season at Fairfield Unviersity.  The 6’5 225lb forward is listed as the 36th best Senior in his class.  He racked up an average of 8.2 rebounds per game, which is quite impressive for a 6’5 player.

Whiteside was an early 2nd round pick in the 2010 NBA Draft made by the Sacramento Kings.  He was Conference USA Freshman of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year at Marshall University, where he only played for one year.  Since being drafted, Whiteside has been up and down from the Kings to the team’s D-League affiliate.
