Former Kansas University men's basketball guard Ben McLemore of the Sacramento Kings, who fired his agent (Rodney Blackstock) a couple of weeks ago, has chosen Klutch Sports Group as his new representation, the Sacramento Bee reports. LeBron James is also represented by Klutch and its owner, Rich Paul.
“It was a man decision. Like I told all my family members, it was something I had to figure on my own and make a decision for myself,” McLemore told the Bee, referring to firing Blackstock, who received his certification right before the 2013 NBA Draft, in which St. Louis native McLemore was taken seventh.
“I tried to get everybody’s opinion. At the end of the day, it was my decision. I’m trying to move forward and focus on the season.”
The Kings recently picked up McLemore’s contract option for 2015-16 ($3,156,600 ). He’s making $3,026,280 this season.
