Kevin Durant Signs With Agent Rob Pelinka

Roughly a month after splitting with longtime agent Aaron Goodwin, KD has officially signed with Rob Pelinka, CEO and President of Landmark Sports Agency. Pelinka represents a number of players, including Kobe Bryant, Carlos Boozer, Andre Iguodala, Gerald Wallace and Thunder guard James Harden. Below is the news-breaking tweet from Sports Business Journal’s Liz Mullen:

    Wasn’t Pelinka the dude who traveled with Kobe to Colorado, all those times during the sex scandal? And then there was the Carlos Boozer disaster with Cleveland/Utah…

    I hope KD doesn’t get into any contract problems, or gets caught cheating on his GF with a skinny white girl, lol!

    Until I saw the Fab 5 documentary on ESPN, I had no idea that Rob Pelinka was on that Michigan State team. Think he was starting before Jalen and co. took all their spots.

    Somewhere out there, CCA and Leon Rose are crying their eyes out.

    Rob was @ Michigan, not Mich State…and, yeah, I think Ray Jackson too his spot.he was a swing, so jalen wouldnt be playing small forward. Coulda been jimmy king, though

    Given how the new CBA works and KD reupping recently, don’t know how meaningful this is…

    @ JDubb You’re right. Don’t why I wrote Mich State. And I meant that the freshmen came up and took all their starting spots.

    Didn’t Goodwin get dumped by LeBron too?

    ^ He did. Its funny tho, it seems like he secures these guys good deals and then they kick him to the curb. Weird.

    @ Heals…..Have you ever heard of endorsements?

  • Heals

    Naw man what are those? What’s Pelinka going to do? Tell him to wear a backpack to postgame pressConf’s and turn it into a unique Nike deal. Maybe Pelinka could get him a yearly Nike sneaker release too. Or even better yet get him linked with a hip brand like SkullCandy along with other young NBAers. Oh wait, they already, yeah, yeah junior “Step ya game up!” ($$$Maywaether voice)…
