Anthony Edwards, one of the top NBA Draft prospects, has signed to an exclusive marketing and management agreement with Octagon. Octagon Basketball’s Omar Wilkes will be his representation.
Edwards, the No. 1 prospect coming out of high school, was a McDonald’s All-American and Jordan Brand Classic All-Star. The Georgia native became a freshman sensation for the University of Georgia. He was named SEC Freshman of the Year and All-SEC Second Team.
He finished his freshman season as the nation’s leading scoring freshman averaging 19.1 PPG, 5.2 RPG and 2.8 AST.
The 6’5”, 225lb guard is projected to be the 2nd overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to the latest CBS Sports NBA Mock Draft. With his natural size and athleticism, Edwards would be a great fit for this Cavaliers offense. His shot-creation ability will make him a productive starter as soon as he lands in Cleveland.
Octagon’s track record of representing basketball stars dates back over 30 years. The preeminent integrated marketing and talent management agency has represented some of the biggest names in the sport including Moses Malone, Stephen Curry, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Elenna Delle Donne.
There is a William Hill bonus being offered for those interested.
