David Falk and Georgetown.  The two go hand-in-hand.  That is why it should not be a surprise that the long-time successful basketball agent has become the agent of record for former Georgetown forward Otto Porter.  Porter was a consensus first team All-American and earned Big Easy Player of the Year in 2013.

Among his current clients alone (and he purposefully keeps a small client base these days), Falk represents 3 former Hoyas: Greg Monroe, Roy Hibbert and Jeff Green.  He has also served as the agent for John Thompson Jr. and John Thompson III.  It was only natural for Porter to choose Falk and his company FAME for representation. and both list Porter as a Top 10 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.  There is a strong chance that he does not make it past the first 5.
