NBA Award-Winners And Their Agencies

All of this year's award-winning players have their hardware now, with the exception of the Finals MVP. We'll have to wait at least a couple more weeks to find out who that will be, but the rest of the award-winners have been feted with press conferences and pregame ceremonies. Behind the scenes, their agents have no doubt been celebrating as well, particularly those whose clients have contract negotiations on the agenda this summer.

Using the Hoops Rumors Agency Database, we can get an idea of the league's most powerful agencies through the prism of this year's awards. The Creative Artists Agency is this year's most decorated outfit, boasting eight players who took home honors this spring. Three of them — Chris Paul, Paul George and J.R. Smith — could be calling on CAA to help them cash in on their success this summer. Five other agencies boast multiple award-winners. Rich Paul's Klutch Sports Group only has one client on this list, but it's the one to have: LeBron James.

Here's the complete list. The specific agent assigned to each client, when known, is in parentheses.
