Jerryd Bayless has signed a representation agreement with Excel Sports Management President Jeff Schwartz, ESM’s Vice President Sam Goldfeder told DraftExpress today. “It’s a done deal,” Goldfeder said in a phone conversation this afternoon.

The freshman from Arizona had announced his intentions to enter the draft during Final Four weekend ten days ago, but did not rush into signing with an agent until now. He is projected to be selected anywhere from 3-7 according to numerous NBA executives we’ve spoken with, largely depending on the final order of the drafted lottery, which will be decided on May 20th.

The LA based Schwartz is considered one of the top agents in the NBA today, with a star-studded client list including players such as Jason Kidd, Paul Pierce, Lamar Odom, Emeka Okafor, Al Jefferson, Josh Howard, Tyson Chandler and others.

Other Agent Hirings

-The Lopez twins, Brook and Robin, both hired Wasserman Media Group’s Bob Myers to represent them in the draft.

- Eric Gordon will reportedly be represented by Rob Pelinka.

-As stated weeks ago exclusively by DraftExpress, Anthony Randolph indeed hired B.J. Armstrong of WMG.

-Devon Hardin signed with Lon Babby of Williams and Connolly.

-Jason Thompson has signed with CAA’s Andre Buck, as has Drexel’s Frank Elegar. Malik Hairston of Oregon will also be represented by CAA.

-Maarty Leunen of Oregon will be represented by Greg Lawrence of Wasserman Media Group.

-Bryce Taylor of Oregon will be represented by Priority Sports. Jaycee Carroll, Rob Kurz and Joe Ingles have also signed with Mark Bartelstein’s Chicago-based agency.

-New Mexico’s J.R. Giddens has signed with Aaron Mintz of Priority Sports.

-Courtney Lee has signed with Miami based Jason Levien, as has St. Joe’s senior Pat Calathes.
