Kadeem Allen was the lone senior on this year’s Arizona Wildcats roster, so he was the lone guarantee to move on.

And now he’s found an agency. It just happens to be run by Lil Wayne.

According to the Young Money APAA Sports website, the biggest sports client they currently have is....Terrance Ferguson.

In 2016, APAA Sports Group merged with Young Money, who does have some big-time artists on its label including Drake and Nicki Minaj. APAA’s claim to fame is “negotiating the largest contract in the history of the 2nd round for one our NBA draftees and sourcing millions of dollars worth of corporate endorsements and equity deals, appearances and autograph signings”.

Allen is ranked as the 19th-best senior and 19th-best Pac-12 prospect by DraftExpress, and has been compared to former San Diego State Aztec Jamaal Franklin by NBADraftNet. Franklin is currently playing in China after being drafted 41st overall by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2013.

In 2016-17, Allen averaged 9.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.6 steals per game for the Wildcats. This led to him being named to the Pac-12 All-Defensive team, and was also second-team all-conference.
