Rich Paul is dominating the NBA in regards to player representation. With a client roster that includes superstars such as Lebron James, Anthony Davis, John Wall, Ben Simmons and Draymond Green, it is quite obvious that Klutch Sports is thriving in the NBA.
Could Klutch Sports be just as dominant with an NFL
division? Adam Schefter tweeted, “NBA is now turning to the NFL: Klutch Sports
Group, led by well-known Rich Paul, is in talks with agent Damarius Bilbo to
lead his football division, per source.”
Damarius Bilbo, former Georgia Tech football player, spent a few years with the Dallas Cowboys before transitioning to the agency side of the NFL. In January 2019, Bilbo was suspended from being an agent for three months and fined $12,500 after he deposited a $18,000 check into his bank account rather than his client’s Jarvis Landry’s account. Despite the controversy, Landry remains a client of Bilbo. Alvin Kamara and Melvin Gordon are among other clients of Bilbo.
With the presence that Rich Paul has in the NBA combined with the influence that Maverick Carter and Lebron James have among athletes around the globe with their companies such as Uninterrupted and HBO’s The Shop, don’t be surprised if the Klutch Sports NFL Division bursts onto the scene to be an immediate competitor to the likes of Drew Rosenhaus, CAA and Athletes First.
