Rich Paul’s elite NBA sports agency added Los Angeles Lakers guard Kendrick Nunn to its star-studded roster, a move that shows confidence in Nunn’s talent.
Rich Paul’s ascent from selling vintage sports jerseys to having one of the NBA’s most exclusive talent agencies is almost unbelievable — and so is the amount of Lakers Paul now represents.
As of Wednesday, Paul’s agency, Klutch Sports Group, has now added Lakers guard Kendrick Nunn to their star-studded roster.
Nunn, who went undrafted in the 2018 NBA Draft, is a 26-year-old Miami Heat star who figures to have an important role in another Lakers title hunt.

Nunn joins Lakers teammates LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Talen Horton-Tucker as Paul’s Lakers clients, but the rapidly-growing agency has signed on some of the biggest names in the NBA.
Both older veterans and young phenoms round out the Klutch Sports Group clientele. John Wall, Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green are all clients, as are Lonzo Ball and Anthony Edwards. With only three years of experience, Nunn is one of the greener players in the agency, making his signing even more powerful as a young Laker.
Nunn signed with the Lakers on Aug. 6, after two years showcasing his skills with the Miami Heat. His NBA debut went off with a bang when he broke Heat and NBA records in his first few showings. Nunn was the highest-scoring Heat player in the preseason in the last 20 years, and his 112 point total in his first five NBA games broke the record for the most by an undrafted player. After his two years with the Heat, Nunn averages 15 points and three assists per game.
Still, the Lakers got him on a cheap two-year contract worth just $10.5 million. The biggest news coming out of the Klutch Sports signing is that Nunn will finally get the contract he deserves come 2023.
