Another Name Behind the Team

Over the past month, Integrity Sports Agency has continued adding to our stellar team and has continued to grow as we await the NBA draft and the new batch of NBA free agents. We have added yet another recognizable name to our endorsements list, Johnny Newman. Newman, a 16-year veteran of the NBA and former president of the National Basketball Retired Players Association has spoken out on behalf of ISA.

Anthony Fletcher, CEO of Integrity Sports Agency, and Johnny Newman have a relationship that has extended over 30 years. During this time, both have grown and established a name for themselves. Through his years of playing collegiate basketball, Fletcher has learned to both love and respect the sport. The love Fletcher has for the sport eventually led him to opening and owning his own agency. While playing, Fletcher learned many valuable lessons and traits that have carried over into his agency. At Integrity Sports Agency, we abide by five traits as the cornerstone of our company: Forthrightness, Accountability, Integrity, Trust, and Honest. These five traits are the foundation of any successful client-athlete relationship. The importance of these traits can be recognized in the profound feedback given by his own colleague, Johnny Newman.

Since Newman has worked closely with his agent throughout his 16 years inside the NBA, he understands the value and the importance of selecting the right representative. When asked about his close friend and his company, Johnny only responded with nothing but respect.

“Throughout my 30-year relationship with Integrity Sports Agency CEO Tony Fletcher, I’ve always been impressed with his knowledge of the game and his ability to build strong relationships with people of all walks of life. He has a true passion for developing players on a personal and professional level. Whether you are a basketball phenom, or a proud parent, Tony is committed to providing you with the support and resources to be a successful as individual and as a family unit. When vetting sports agents, Tony checks all of the critical boxes: Resourceful, Knowledgeable, Relatable, Loyal, and Trustworthy. Partnering with ISA is a no-brainer.” ~ Johnny Newman

With such kind words from former players as well as from analysts of the game, it’s no wonder the company continues to grow and succeed. Our team at ISA are proud to have a legend such as Johnny on our side, and we cannot wait to continue growing our list of incredible athletes and endorsements!
