Klutch Sports Signs Another Former NBA Draft First Round Pick

Klutch Sports Group continues to add to its star-studded NBA clientele, signing Toronto Raptors forward OG Anunoby for representation. Klutch Sports announced the move across their social media platforms on Friday. 

Anunoby was represented by Chris Emens and Omar Wilkes of Octagon. Wilkes, the son of Naismith Basketball Hall of Famer Jamaal Wilkes, left Octagon in June after eight years with the agency and joined Klutch Sports as the Head of Basketball thereafter. 

Anunoby started 68 of 69 possible regular season games in the shortened 2019-20 season, averaging 10.6 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. In 11 playoff games, the 23rd overall selection in the 2017 NBA Draft started every game and averaged 10.5 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. He also shot 39% and 41.5% from deep in the regular season and postseason, respectively. The Raptors were eliminated by the Boston Celtics in the conference semifinals. 

The Raptors exercised Anunoby’s fourth-year option in October 2019. The former Indiana Hoosier is slated to make approximately $3.9 million in 2020-21 and will become a restricted free agent next summer, though the team could sign him to a rookie-scale extension before the 2020-21 season begins. 

Klutch Sports signed New Orleans Pelicans guard Lonzo Ball for representation earlier this week. The agency’s NBA clientele now includes LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Ben Simmons, Trae Young, John Wall, and Draymond Green, among others.
