NBA sports agent, Bill Duffy, is expected to have a good size 2014 NBA Draft Class.  Currently, Duffy is also focusing his efforts on the international scope with his agency BDA Sports.

The latter comes on the heels of a joint venture alliance with Australian sports and talent agency One Management Group and Consulting, according to Sports Business Journal.  Duffy — a veteran NBPA Player Agent — is attempting to market his clients in Australia and other international markets.

“It is something that Bill and I have been talking about for a couple of years,” Bruce Kaider, Managing Director of Melbourne-based OMGC, told Sports Business Journal.

Initially, the two agencies will focus on securing partnerships and off-the-court deals for Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Matthew Dellavedova and WNBA Seattle Storm guard, Jenna O’Hea.  Both players are natives of Australia.

BDA Sports’ upcoming draft class includes Kansas forward Andrew Wiggins, Arizona forward Aaron Gordon, UCLA guard Zach LaVine and a handful of other prospects.
