After six years with respected agent Bill Duffy, Warriors guard Klay Thompson has jumped to another highly credible agency.
Thompson recently signed with the Greg Lawrence of the Wasserman Media Group, which will represent him in all negotiations.
Duffy on Monday confirmed that Thompson had moved on, informing CSNBayArea.com that he respects the decision.
The Wasserman group last year assumed control of Thompson’s off-court deals, while Duffy’s group, BDA Sports Management, continued to be responsible for NBA contracts.
Thompson’s decision to utilize Wasserman for all aspects, first reported by Sports Business Journal, comes with the three-time All-Star in the second season of the four-year, $69-million deal negotiated by BDA in October 2014.
The move comes with Thompson’s shoe company, Anta, attempting to reach a multiyear extension. His current deal, negotiated by BDA, expires in 2020.
Wasserman, which formerly employed Warriors general manager Bob Myers, has two other Warriors as clients, as B.J. Armstrong represents Draymond Green and JaVale McGee.
