Tandem Signs University of Maryland’s Big Ten All-Freshman Honoree Diamond Stone

Stone will enter the 2016 NBA Draft after spending one season at Maryland.

 

Arlington, VA, April 11, 2016 – Tandem Sports + Entertainment has signed NBA-bound Diamond Stone, Tandem President Jim Tanner announced. Tandem will provide full-service representation for Stone, overseeing contractual agreements, personal appearances, public relations services, corporate partnerships, community relations initiatives and business opportunities.
