Arn Tellem NBA client list

New, comments

One of the most powerful agents in the NBA just became one of the most powerful team executives in the NBA. And he has a whole host of former clients with whom he has connections.

Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

Arn Tellem was already one of the most well-known and well-respected agents in the business, but now he's poised to become perhaps one of the most influential topline team executives in the NBA.

After the surprise announcement that Tom Gores had swooped in and hired Tellem away from Wasserman Media Group to serve as Vice Chairmen of Palace Sports & Entertainment. In Detroit, he will be broadly responsible for business strategy and enmeshing the Palace within the community. According to Adrian Wojnarowksi, Tellem will largely be the face of ownership in Michigan and report directly to Tom Gores.

But when one of the most powerful agents in the business leaves his current post, it's only natural to wonder exactly what his client list looked like, and if any of them could make sense in Detroit in the future. After all, he might be leaving the sports agent business, but he's not exactly deleting contacts off of his phone.

While agent-client lists are pretty spotty overall, I'm going to use the wonderful Draft Express's rundown of clients. It is an impressive and extensive list representing more than $740 million in possible salary.
