KLUTCH Sports Group Reveals Star-Studded Women’s Basketball Division

A’ja Wilson, Aliyah Boston, Chelsea Gray, Alisha Gray, and Judea Watkins join KLUTCH’s roster, with Jade-Li English set to represent them.

Not only is KLUTCH Sports Group creating a women’s basketball division, but the agency announced Thursday that their inaugural clients are some of the biggest stars in the game.

2020 WNBA MVP A’ja Wilson, Olympic gold medalists Chelsea Gray and Alisha Gray, national player of the year frontrunner Aliyah Boston, and top-five 2023 recruit Judea “Juju” Watkins will all be KLUTCH clients. To represent them, the agency is bringing on acclaimed agent Jade-Li English.

“Jade has made a significant impact in women’s basketball and is a great addition to our team as we embark on this new journey,” KLUTCH COO Fara Leff said in a release.

CEO Rich Paul sees this as an opportunity to empower women athletes as women’s basketball continues to grow in the United States.

“When I started this agency a decade ago, I envisioned KLUTCH playing a role in empowering all athletes,” he said. “Women are some of the most electrifying and inspiring athletes in the world, and KLUTCH is excited and honored to be a part of that story.”

Because Boston and Watkins are yet to go pro — Boston plays for South Carolina, while Watkins still has another year at Sierra Canyon High School — both will work with English and the KLUTCH team on name, image, and likeness opportunities.

Boston is also an early candidate to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 WNBA Draft, which is something English is already familiar with. Wilson, a long-time English client, also went to South Carolina and was the top pick in the 2018 draft.
