Lonzo Ball Leaves Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports, Signs With Rich Paul Of Klutch Sports
CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES — Last spring 2020, D.M. Fashion Book reported that LaMelo, Lonzo and LiAngelo Ball signed representation agreements with Shawn Jay-Z Carter‘s Sports Management company, Roc Nation Sports (see it here).
A few months after signing with Roc Nation Sports, Ball has left the company.
The New Orleans Pelicans guard is making some changes off the court, taking charge of his career and making business decisions. Three years into his NBA career, Ball has signed with agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports, the 22-year-old told ESPN.
“I wanted to lead my career,” Ball told ESPN. “Picking my own representation — just solely as my decision — was step one in that process. For me, it was an easy call, and it was the right time to make that call.”
Ball joins Klutch Sports after brief stints with Creative Artists Agency and Roc Nation.
Ball said he started his offseason training regimen yesterday Monday (September 14), which includes two-a-day sessions on the basketball court and workouts in the weight room.
Ball said his goal for next season is to make the playoffs and put himself in contention to follow in teammate Brandon Ingram‘s footsteps.
“Once we get in the playoffs, we take it one game at a time,” Ball said. “For myself, I think Most Improved Player is definitely something I can get next year.”
