The Klutch Sports Group has added yet another great player to their family during the 2020 NBA offseason. Portland Trail-Blazers guard, Gary Trent Jr. has joined Rich Paul's sport agency, Adrian Wojnarowski from ESPN reported.
One of the breakout players of The Bubble – Portland Trail Blazers guard Gary Trent Jr., -- has signed with Klutch Sports, CEO Rich Paul tells ESPN. Paul and agent Lucas Newton will rep Trent Jr.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) October 5, 2020
The 21-year-old Trent will be a restricted free agent following the 2020-21 season, allowing him to field offers from other teams before the Blazers can ultimately match the said offers.
CEO Rich Paul has negotiated many large paydays for players in Klutch, therefore there's no doubt this is a smart move for Trent.
Trent Jr., who has proven to be a reliable three-point shooter, had a stellar performance during the NBA seeding games at Orlando. The second-year player averaged 17 points a game on an incredible 50.7 percent from three. He played a huge role in the Blazers 7-2 run that got them to the play-in game and eventually a series with the Los Angeles Lakers in the playoffs.
The Duke product now joins a group of talented players represented by Klutch Sports, including LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Ben Simmons.
