Derrick Williams just finished his Sophomore season at the University of Arizona. During the NCAA Tournament, quite a few people said that Williams was one of, if not the, best college players in America.
On March 24, 2011, I looked at which agents and agencies have signed talented Arizona basketball players over the past few years. I noted that BDA Sports and Landmark Sports Agency both seem to be in the lead with two players each, but that it seemed as though anybody had a shot at Derrick Williams. At the time, I knew that BDA Sports, Landmark Sports Agency, and Wasserman Media Group were in the running, and time has told who the victor will be.
According to Liz Mullen of SportsBusiness Journal, Rob Pelinka of Landmark Sports Agency has recently signed Williams. Other players currently represented by Pelinka at Landmark Sports Agency include Kobe Bryant, Derek Fisher, Andre Iguodala, and Carlos Boozer.
