NBA Player Nerlens Noel Settles and Will Pay Agent’s Commission on Knicks Contract

Detroit Pistons center Nerlens Noel settled his legal case with agent Rich Paul and Klutch Sports Group and will pay the full commission he owed the agency from a $5 million deal he signed with the New York Knicks in 2020, per news sources.

The Athletic noted Noel alleged Paul “Did little to no work” on his behalf when it came to maximizing his contract offers and endorsement opportunities, which cost him significant money over the course of his career.

The Kentucky product’s attorneys said he “was instead forced to sign a series of qualifying offers and league minimum contracts which were well below the true value of Noel’s services in the NBA marketplace.”

Noel returned to Dallas on a shorter deal and then signed small deals with the Oklahoma City Thunder and Knicks during the ensuing years. The No. 6 overall pick of the 2013 NBA draft has played for the Philadelphia 76ers, Mavericks, Thunder, Knicks and Pistons during his career. Noel has appeared in 10 games for Detroit this season.
