The King has gained a new Duke at his table. Longtime agent of LeBron James, Rich Paul, has officially signed New Orleans Pelican Anthony Davis. Paul has been a longtime friend and agent of James. He also represents world class talent such as Eric Blesdoe, John Wall, and Ben Simmons.
Paul’s agency, Klutch Sports, made the official announcement this last Sunday. LeBron James himself welcomed Davis “to the Family” on Twitter.

Pelican fans have no need to worry about Davis leaving New Orleans. Paul represents over 20 different NBA clients around the NBA and plans to meet with the Pelicans soon about Davis’s contract. Davis becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2020 and is eligible to sign up to a five year, $235 million extension next summer according to ESPN.
With new representation, we could see a shift in dynamics in the Pelican roster in the upcoming seasons. The ball is in our front office’s court whether or not they capitalize on this new shift in agency.
