Lebron James has decided to part ways from his long time agent Leon Rose to join a new agency started by his friend Rich Paul.
Sources report that the departure between James and Rose is not based on hard feelings. Representatives for the NBA star said the shift is simply a matter of creating a new relationship with an up and coming agency.
Paul, who worked under Rose at the Creative Artists Agency, has known James since he was a teenager and has earned the respect of industry executives during his short-time as an agent. Paul has represented athletes such as Michael Kidd-Gilchris and Tristan Thompson of the Charlotte Bobcats and Los Angeles Clipper Eric Bledsoe.
