Opting for the NBA draft instead of staying on Montlake, Dejounte Murray joins projected No. 1 NBA draft pick Ben Simmons with the Cleveland-based agency.
Nearly a week after announcing he would enter the NBA draft, Dejounte Murray signed with Cleveland-based Klutch Sports Group and agent Rich Paul.
The company’s biggest client is LeBron James who helped start the business with long-time friend Paul.
Murray posted a picture with the Cavaliers star on his Instagram page with the caption that read: Lets Work Big Homie.
Paul also snagged perhaps the biggest prize among the draft hopefuls in Ben Simmons, who is projected as the No. 1 overall pick after spending one season at LSU.
