OCTOBER 21, 2021 // ANNOUNCEMENTS
San Diego, Calif. (October 20th, 2021) – The Familie is excited to announce another addition to its team. The Familie hires Jonathan Wall to its NBA division.
Jonathan Wall is an experienced attorney with an extensive understanding of the game and business of basketball. After graduating from Harvard Law School, Jonathan began his career representing leading companies and executives in the sports, entertainment, finance, and technology industries at a top-ranked corporate law firm in New York City. In 2019, he was named to the National Black Lawyers’ “40 under 40” list. Despite his success in the legal field, Jonathan’s goal was always to utilize his professional and interpersonal skills to advocate on behalf of athletes. Following a lifelong dream, he obtained his NBPA Agent certification in 2020 and has since advised NBA players regarding contract issues, business ventures, and post-NBA career planning. He has also worked with college and high school basketball players to explore and evaluate opportunities to benefit from their name, image, and likeness rights.
Kyle Cameron, President of the NBA division, says, “Jonathan’s intelligence, enthusiasm, and passion for players will play an imperative role in serving our clients; his ability to educate our players in recognizing their value on and off the court is second to none. Jonathan joining our team is a huge move forward in player development. I am beyond thrilled to have him join us!”
“When you think about what it takes to help evolve players in more ways than just their contracts, you know you need someone who is educated and experienced in more ways than just one,” says Steve Astephen, Founder & CEO. “Jonathan is an incredible addition to the team.”
Jonathan says, “I can’t imagine a better place to begin my career as an agent. From the moment I met Kyle, Steve, and the dynamic team at The Familie, I could tell that they were just as passionate about helping their clients navigate the various stages of their lives as they were about sports and business. I’m excited to grow with the agency’s NBA division and to help it evolve into the premier landing spot for elite basketball players.”
