Consolidation marks Brooklyn Nets agent list

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

We don't know if it's league-wide trend but the Nets 15 players --plus Bojan Bogdanovic-- are now represented by only six agencies, with four Nets each being repped by Jeff Schwartz and Arn Tellem and three Nets repped by Andy Miller.  Schwartz also reps Jason Kidd.

Here's our update ... post-trade deadline and 10-day signings:

Jeff Schwartz, Excel Sports Management

--Deron Williams, Paul Pierce, Mirza Teletovic, Shaun Livingston, Jason Kidd

Notes: The Nets have a great relationship with Jeff Schwartz who represents four Nets players as well as their 2012 second round pick, Ilkan Karaman (through his European partner). Of course, Schwartz also reps Jason Kidd. Among his other clients: Devin Harris, Blake Griffin, Tyson Chandler and Lamar Odom. The Nets credit Schwartz with helping them re-sign Williams, shepherding Kidd's coaching candidacy and convincing Pierce to agree to the trade. It was Schwartz, in fact, who first broached the head coaching idea to both Kidd and the Nets ownership. Earlier this season, he added Livingston.

Arn Tellem, Wasserman Media Group.

--Joe Johnson, Brook Lopez, Jason Collins, Jorge Gutierrez, Bojan Bogdanovic

Notes: Tellem's Wasserman and Schwartz's Excel are the two biggest NBA agencies. Tellem recently picked up Bogdanovic, the Nets' Euro-Stash, who had been represented by Marc Cornstein. Tellem's son, Matt, works in the Nets' front office. Tellem had been helping Collins find work before the Nets signed him. Wasserman Media's B.J. Armstrong, the former Bull, reps Gutierrez.

Andy Miller, ASM Sports

-- Kevin Garnett, Andray Blatche, Marquis Teague

Notes: With Nets sending Tyshawn Taylor to New Orleans and acquiring Marquis Teague, Andy Miller and Jeff Schwartz are now tied for most Nets repped, with four each. Miller is one of the most respected sports agents in the US. His role in getting Garnett to agreed to waive his no-trade clause is one of the more underappreciated aspects of the Nets off-season. Deron Williams and Jason Kidd may have texted Garnett, but it was Miller who negotiated with the Nets on getting his final year fully guaranteed. He once worked for the Nets in the their press office. Other than KG, the three Nets he reps make a combined $4 million. KG of course makes $12.4 million.

Marc Fleisher, Entersport Management

--Andrei Kirilenko

Notes: Fleisher reps a number of the NBA's international players. Like Schwartz and Miller, his role was critical in making the Nets' off-season successful, blessing the final deal between the two sides. Kirilenko is his biggest client by far. Also reps Aron Baynes of the Spurs.

Mark Bartelstein, Priority Sports

--Alan Anderson, Mason Plumlee

Notes: Bartelstein, one of the NBA's biggest agents, hadn't repped any Nets for a few years until this summer. He pushed hard for the Nets to sign Anderson to a two-year deal, with a player option in the second year, an ideal arrangement for a journeyman.  Anderson originally agreed to a two-year deal with a starting salary of $1.8 million, Peter Vecsey reported. He then signed for the vets minimum when he heard the Nets were getting Kirilenko. That freed up the full mini-MLE for the Nets to use on AK-47.  Bartlestein also represents David Lee, Taj Gibson and Mason's brother, Miles Plumlee.

Tony Dutt, Dutt Sports

--Marcus Thornton

Notes: Dutt helped Thornton out of a bad situation in Sacramento.  He reps a mostly young clientele, including the Morris twins, Thomas Robinson, etc., but also Raymond Felton.
