Arlington, VA, November 16, 2021 – Tandem Sports + Entertainment/You First has signed 2021 first-round draft pick Cam Thomas for full-service representation. Jim Tanner and Terrence Felder will represent Thomas. The agency will handle contractual agreements, personal appearances, public relations, corporate partnerships, and community relations initiatives for the first-year guard.
One of the top offensive players in this year’s rookie class, Thomas was selected in the first round by the Brooklyn Nets with the 27th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. During the 2021 NBA Summer League, the 20-year-old guard earned co-MVP honors, averaging 27.0 points per game, the second-highest in the event’s 17-year history.
“We are excited to work with Cam,” Tanner said. “He is an incredibly talented young man with high character. We believe he can be a perennial NBA All-Star, and we are looking forward to helping him reach his professional goals.”
Before the NBA, Thomas played for Louisiana State University, leading the SEC in scoring, averaging 23.0 points per game. The high-scoring guard would become one of the most decorated collegiate players in the country. He was selected to the All-SEC First Team, All-SEC Freshman Team, and All-SEC Tournament Team.
