After declaring for the draft on Monday, De’Aaron Fox wasted no time in signing an agent. According to Jeff Goodman, Fox signed with Happy Walters of Catalyst Sports, whose client list includes Iman Shumpert (Cavaliers), Jimmy Butler (Bulls), Jerami Grant (Thunder), and Monta Ellis (Paceres).
Walters was the CEO of sports agency giant Relativity Sports before leaving in October 2015 to start Catalyst. Before that, he spent 15 years in the music industry and has also been a producer on several movies, including 2013’s “We’re the Millers.” Fun fact: Walters is good friends with Adam Sandler, to the point that he served as Sandler’s best man in his first marriage and Sandler named one of his most famous characters, “Happy Gilmore,” after him.
There you go. Neat.
