Report: Impact Sports Basketball Suffers Setback

According to, Impact Sports Basketball — a division of Impact Sports — represents fewer than 15 current NBA players.

And yet, for the upcoming 2014 NBA Draft, the agency’s draft class is less than stellar. That may be in part because Impact recently lost one of its top recruiters in Carlos Dew, according to a source close to the situation.

According to the source, Impact Basketball fired Dew because he allegedly stole money and clients from Impact.

“I suspect nobody will want to work with him,” said the source as a result of Dew’s improprieties.

The source also informed Sports Agent Blog that Dew was never a certified agent.  Dew recruited San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard and some of the company’s other clients.

The source said, “It was easier for (Carlos Dew) to do what he needed to do to recruit without being certified (by the NBPA).”

The source stated that the agency has two draft-eligible clients for the 2014 NBA Draft: Langston Galloway (Saint Joseph’s) and Juvonte Reddic (VCU).
