A.J. Slaughter has taken another step toward the professional ranks.
The senior guard told the Herald Thursday that he has acquired an agent — Stu Lash, of Experience BEST Sports Marketing — heading into the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament April 7-10.
Lash, BEST’s Vice President of Basketball, also represents former Topper Courtney Lee, who was drafted 22nd overall in the 2008 NBA Draft.
Before working for BEST, Lash served as the scouting coordinator for the Denver Nuggets from the 2002-2006 seasons and as Director of Basketball and Business Affairs for Levien Sports Representation.
