Here's an updated and revised list of who's representing who on the Nets this season, broken down by agency, according to Hoopshype's agent lists and other sources. It's changed a bit since last season. The NBA's top two agencies, Excel Sports Management and Wasserman Media Group, have eight Nets clients --and their coach-- between them.
Jeff Schwartz, Excel Sports Management
Notes: The Nets have a great relationship with Jeff Schwartz who represents five Nets as well as their 2012 second round pick, Ilkan Karaman (through his European partner). Watson switched agents this year, giving him monopoly control over the Nets point guards. Of course, Schwartz also reps Jason Kidd as well as the point guard who followed Kidd and who preceded D-Will: Devin Harris along with Paul Pierce, Blake Griffin, Tyson Chandler and Lamar Odom. .
Arn Tellem, Wasserman Media Group.
--Joe Johnson, Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries.
Notes: Bob Myers was Brook and Robin's agent then joined the Warriors' front office. Wasserman and Excel are the two biggest NBA agencies. Humphries joined Tellem in September, dumping Dan Fegan. The agency also represents the Collins twins. Tellem's son, Matt, works in the Nets' front office.
Rob Pelinka, Landmark Sports Agency
Dan Fegan, Lagardere
Notes: At one point last season, Dan Fegan had no Nets clients, an oddity for him. At one point or another in 2009-11, Fegan represented nine Nets: Stephen Graham, Rafer Alston, Yi Jianlian, Courtney Lee, Eduardo Najera, Jarvis Hayes, Quinton Ross, Troy Murphy and Humphries. Fegan famously represents Dwight Howard. 'Nuff said. He also represents Ricky Rubio.
Notes: Miller is one of the most respected sports agents in the US. His biggest client is Kevin Garnett. He once worked for the Nets in the their press office. His two clients make less than $3 million combined from the Nets, making them a bargain.
Seth Cohen, Original Creative Representation
Notes: Until recently, Brooks was Cohen's only NBA client. Now, Hollis Thompson of Georgetown has signed with the Thunder and Cohen reps Ricky Ledo in the Draft. Brooks said he and Cohen just clicked and he credits Cohen with arranging for match-ups against top shooting guard prospects like Klay Thompson and Alec Burks.
Guy Zucker, Zucker International
Notes: Zucker convinced the Nets to let Shengelia play in the Orlando Summer League which led to his signing a two-year deal with the Nets. He has two other NBA clients, Thabo Sefolosha and Marcin Gortat, and a host of Euroleague players.
Marc Cornstein, Pinnacle Hoops.
Notes: Cornstein had previously represented Nenad Krstic, Zoran Planinic, Mile Ilic and Boki Nachbar when they played for the Nets. Humphries switched from Dan Fegan to Cornstein around the same time he got engaged to Kim Kardashian, then switched back to Fegan when Kardashian divorced him. Coinidence? Bogdanovic joins a long line of players from the former Yugoslavia who have trusted Cornstein.
