Report: Simmons plans to sign with an agent

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Ben Simmons is in the process of hiring an agent, according to Yahoo Sports.

Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical said according to league sources, Simmons plans to sign with the LeBron James-funded Klutch Sports agency for his pro representation. Rich Paul will serve as Simmons' agent.

Emily Bush, Simmons' sister, was hired by Klutch Sports in 2014, shortly after James and Paul started recruiting Simmons as a potential future client.

Simmons averaged 19.2 points per game this year, grabbing 11.8 rebounds and dishing out 4.8 assists per contest.

LSU (19-14) finished the season with a blowout loss to Texas A&M, 71-38, and turned down an opportunity to play in the NIT.
