All Top 10 Picks of NBA Draft Represented By Black Agents Making Sports History

Last week’s NBA Draft (which took place in New York City at the Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets) was one for the record books! For the first time in history and in any sports, the top ten players selected in the draft are all represented by Black agents, according to an Instagram post by Diverse Representation.

Diverse Representation also lists the players selected and the agency and/or agent that represents them.

  1. Victor Wembanyama- San Antonio Spurs (Represented by Comsportt’s Bouna Ndiaye)
  2. Brandon Miller- Charlotte Hornets (Represented by SAI Sports Management’s Wilmer Jackson)
  3. Scoot Henderson- Portland Trail Blazers (Represented by Par-Lay Sports and Entertainment’s Steve Haney)
  4. Amen Thompson- Houston Rockets (Represented by G.A.P.P. Sports Group’s Troy Thompson)
  5. Ausar Thompson- Detroit Pistons (Represented by G.A.P.P. Sports Group’s Troy Thompson)
  6. Anthony Black- Orlando Magic (Represented by WME Sports’ Bill Duffy)
  7. Bilal Coulibaly- Washington Wizards (Represented by Comportt’s Bouna Ndiaye)
  8. Jarace Walker- Indiana Pacers (Represented by WME Sports’ Bill Duffy and Joe Branch)
  9. Taylor Hendricks- Utah Jazz (Represented by I AM Sports & Entertainment’s Raymond Brothers)
  10. Cason Wallace- Oklahoma City Thunder (Represented by Excel Sports Management’s Marcus Monk)

This NBA Draft also marked the first time that the twin brothers (Amen and Ausar Thompson) were selected in the Top 5 selection of players picked. They were also selected back-to-back (the No. 4 and No. 5 draft picks), a feat that may never be duplicated in any sport.

The Athletic also confirmed that the Thompsons are not the only twins selected in the NBA Draft. That distinction took place over 10 years ago when Marcus and Markieff Morris were picked. The two brothers were selected in 2011 as the No. 13 and No.14 picks that year.
