He already wears the shoes and has a similar game, so why not the same representation?

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, LSU star freshman Ben Simmons is likely to join LeBron James’ agency and representation at Klutch Sports.

Rich Paul of Klutch Sports will serve as Simmons’ agent.

Simmons’ college career ended when LSU decided against accepting an NIT bid on Sunday.

Simmons’ older sister, Emily Bush, has been a marketing/branding employee of Klutch since 2014. She is based in Scottsdale, Ariz. Her hiring came shortly after James and Paul started recruiting Simmons as a potential future client.

Within the basketball industry, it has been understood that Klutch has been the only real pro representation that Simmons has considered. Simmons, a native of Australia, has been the subject of a serious courtship by James, Paul and Klutch Sports since attending the LeBron James Skills Academy in 2014.

The arrangement for Klutch to represent Simmons has been in place for over a year, and agency papers to formalize the partnership are expected to be signed soon, sources said. Simmons will train in either Cleveland or Los Angeles in the predraft process, league sources said.

Simmons' older sister has been an employee of the agency since 2014, as she was hired shortly after James and Paul both began recruiting Simmons as a potential future client.

Simmons averaged 19.2 points and 11.8 rebounds during his one season in Baton Rouge.
