JVM Sports Management is dedicated to finding comprehensive client representation for professional athletes playing in the NBA or Internationally. Our number one priority is to position the athlete with diligent representation that is both personalized and global. We feel that every athlete is unique and deserves specific thought for representation that fits their specific needs. By attending to these specific needs, JVM will build long lasting relationships that will grow over time with the intent to support each athlete in their ever changing and expanding requirements.
The President and CEO has over 10 years of experience in this industry. Prior to establishing “JVM Sports Management,” Mr. Vinson had the incredible and wonderful opportunity to gain quality experience serving as a Consultant with “MHSM” (Brad Marshall & J. R. Harris). Working along side these two gentlemen strongly inspired Mr. Vinson to establish his own “Sports Management Recruiting Agency.”
Some experiences at “MHSM” consisted of:
- Clifford Robinson being waived from the Portland Trailblazers after nine excellent seasons. We revived his career and subsequently he signed a $30 million dollar contract over four seasons with the Phoenix Suns. Cliff recently finished a more than satisfied season with the New Jersey Nets.
- Doug Christie was drafted by the Seattle Supersonics and offered a below market contract of $2.4 million dollars over four years. We engaged in intense negotiations with the team and were successful in forcing a trade to the Los Angeles Lakers where he signed an $8.3 million dollar contract over five years. Doug subsequently was traded to the New York Knicks where he played very little. We then forced a trade sending him to the Toronto Raptors where he secured the starting two guard job and subsequently signed a $22 million dollar contract over four years. In addition to that, we arranged another trade from Toronto to the Sacramento Kings where he finally signed a $48 million contract.
- Anthony Peeler often brags to his friends that it was “MHSM” that freed him from his incarceration with the Vancouver Grizzlies. Anthony had been traded from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Grizzlies when he retained “MHSM.” Although we were successful at getting the team to offer Anthony a lucrative contract, he chose to reject that offer for a trade to the Minnesota Timberwolves, where he then signed an extension making his total contract package worth over $26 million dollars.
These experiences are reflections of who we are and how we were trained to handle special circumstances. Sincerity, honesty, and hard work best describes the philosophy of “JVM Sports Management, LLC.” We understand the difficulties that players face and we intend to handle all matters and concerns in a sensitive and firm way, ensuring that the player will be able to focus on his career and not have to deal with any issues that could adversely affect him.
