LeBron James Reminds Everyone Rich Paul is That Man After Free Agent Signings

The circle of friends you have around you is an indication of who you are most of the time. Los Angeles Lakers superstar, LeBron James definitely has surrounded himself with a successful circle with him being the nucleus. After a week of free agent signings, his good friend, Rich Paul has made several of his players richer while adding to his business coffers as well. James took notice and made the world remember.

In a recent social media post, “King James” reminded the world of the success of his friend and business partner.


According to Sports Illustrated, the super agent just negotiated several contracts, minimum $100 million deals for three of his NBA clients. On the first day of official signings, Paul helped Golden State Warriors mainstay, Draymond Green get a new four-year, $100 million deal. He was able to get the Houston Rockets to offer a max contract to Fred VanVleet for three years and $130 million while ensuring that Jerami Grant stays with the Portland Trail Blazers for a reported five-year, $160 million contract.

Less than two months ago, the president of Klutch Sports Group celebrated the 10-year anniversary of the agency. Within that decade, Klutch has negotiated over $2 billion in contracts for their clients. Not bad for someone that was doubted in the beginning stages of Klutch Sports Group.

Paul began his career working under sports agent Leon Rose (currently president of the New York Knicks), who represented James at the time. He left to start Klutch Sports Agency and brought his friend along with him. The agency now represents over 120 clients, including NBA stars Draymond Green, Anthony Davis, and Trae Young, to name a few.

Footwear News just reported that Paul has re-upped with sneaker company, New Balance. They have collaborated once again to release their latest Rich Paul x New Balance 550 “Forever Yours” project. This will  be available at the end of the month. Earlier this year, New Balance released a previous pairing between the two titled, Klutch Athletics back in February.

“Forever Yours” will be released on July 14 and will retail at $130.
