Tracy McGrady, Jermaine O’Neal to launch NBA player representation agency

Hall of Famer Tracy McGrady and six-time NBA All-Star Jermaine O’Neal are planning to launch a player representation agency this fall, according to The New York Times‘ Marc Stein

The two former NBA veterans, now 41 years of age, are opting to start Seven1 Sports Group and Entertainment to help young players in their NBA journeys, with a focus on young Black players. The agency’s name incorporates McGrady and O’Neal’s jersey numbers and represents their goal to help incoming talent. 

“We think it’s needed, and we have a passion for it,” McGrady told The Times. “We’re around kids every single day because we have youth programs. It just makes sense. We see the lack of information that these kids are getting, so we would be doing a disservice to our people if we don’t lend our expertise of what we know and help guide them. This is a calling that we have.”
