Knicks’ Julius Randle Changes Agencies

Knicks forward Julius Randle, a longtime CAA client, has left the agency and signed with WME Sports for representation, according to a Twitter announcement from WME.

As Fred Katz of The Athletic notes (via Twitter), Randle was represented by George Bass of AAI Sports when he first went pro in 2014, but hired Aaron Mintz and Steve Heumann of CAA Sports during his rookie year and had been with CAA since then — until now.

The Knicks have a close relationship with CAA, Katz notes (via Twitter). Top executives Leon Rose and William Wesley previously worked for the agency, which represents Jalen Brunson, Josh Hart, Isaiah Hartenstein, and head coach Tom Thibodeau, among others.

Randle’s departure from the agency obviously doesn’t mean that his departure from the Knicks will follow, but it’s a change worth noting as the time for his next contract negotiation nears.

Randle is currently under contract through at least the next two years, with a player option decision to come for the 2025/26 season. He’ll become extension-eligible during the summer of 2024 and would be entering a potential contract year if he doesn’t sign a new deal next offseason.
