It’s a smart business move for the pair of versatile wing men, as Paul has grown his reputation as one of the best agents in the entire NBA with each passing season.
Of course, the Klutch Sports Group is mostly famous for having the services of the world’s greatest player in LeBron James, who has put the company and Paul on the map with the business savvy deals and the ability to enable players the power to control their own destiny.
Both James and Paul have been pioneers in changing the business side of basketball, in which players now control their own narrative.
Recently, James welcomed the twins to the Klutch family.
Both players will no doubt demand large deals once they hit the free agent market. They both played on the same roster in Phoenix for the Suns, and playing together again may be on their minds with this deal.
With Klutch, they now have the backing of one of the most trusted agents in the league, and will no doubt sign a deal they’re happy with moving forward in a situation they can thrive in.
Markieff is set to make $8.6 million next season, whilst Marcus will earn himself $5.4 million. Given what other players around the league are making, the two brothers are basically competing at bargain price right now.
The pair are still very much productive with Markieff averaging 11.5 points per game, 5.6 rebounds per game and 1.9 assists per contest in 73 games last season. He also shot an impressive 48% from the field and 36.4% from downtown.
Marcus was also great, as an instrumental part of the Celtics remarkable run to the Eastern Conference Finals, he averaged 13.6 points per game, 5.4 rebounds per game and 1.3 assists per game in 54 outings.
