Report: Knicks center fires Rich Paul and Klutch Sports as his agent

Nerlens Noel and Blake Griffin Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

New York Knicks center Nerlens Noel will no longer be represented by Rich Paul and Klutch Sports.

Noel reportedly terminated his relationship with Paul and is looking for a new agent.

Noel signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the Knicks this offseason.

The NBPA reportedly confirmed that the relationship was terminated but would not reveal by which party.

Noel, 26, played for the Oklahoma City Thunder last season. He averaged 7.4 points and 4.9 rebounds in 18.5 minutes per game last season.

Noel joins Mitchell Robinson on the Knicks to form one of the better defensive center duos in basketball.

However, it is possible that Noel was frustrated he didn’t find a long-term contract this offseason and that is the reasoning behind his leaving Klutch Sports.

Regardless, Noel will look to have a solid season for the Knicks before hitting the open market again next offseason.
