John Wall Impresses in Summer League Debut But Draws Investigation For Relationship With Agent

by

In his first ever professional basketball game, John Wall lived up to the hype, scoring 24 points and dishing out eight assists in the Washington Wizards' 84-79 victory over the Golden State Warrior in Las Vegas. Some reports, though, are claiming that Wall may have been a little too professional before he was even at University of Kentucky.

According to TMZ, the University of Kentucky is being investigated due to John Wall's long-standing relationship with his agent Brian Clifton. Clifton, who admitted to being a certified agent while Wall was still in high school claimed that he was at "the end of the agent thing" in 2008 prior to founding the club team that John Wall played on before going to University of Kentucky.

Once Wall left college, though, Clinton got back into the agent game, founding firm Pindar Enterprises and helping Wall negotiate his $25 million shoe deal with Reebok.

If Wall had an agreement to be represented by Clinton prior to being in college, such would be a direct violation of NCAA rules.

The allegations add to the many borderline-incidents that have surfaced at John Calipari coached programs over the years.
