    Marcus Murphy | New Orleans Saints
  • James has your back! When I got injured in Houston, James fought to get me the largest injury settlement possible. He set up a training program for me to get back to 100% and then worked to get me workouts with NFL teams after I was healthy.

    Anthony McClung | Houston Texans
  • James is a believer. He doesn't sign you unless he is fully invested and you know he is gonna give it all he's got. That's what you want in an agent, someone who believes in you and works as hard off the court as you do on it.

    Gerard DeVaughn | FIBA Asia

  • Draft Preparation

    Marcus MurphyPreparing for the Draft is more involved than it seems. Your success depends on a combination of factors including the right training facilities, trainers, and nutritionists – all of whom help design the proper regimen for you to be at your best leading up the draft.
