Sports agent, David Falk, that has represented a number of the greatest names in pro basketball (including Michael Jordan) and has been considered one of the most important driving forces of the modern NBA, merely donated $15 million to Syracuse University. Falk and his wife Rhonda are both graduates of Syracuse as well as their donation is one of the largest single presents the university has ever received.
David Falk Net Worth $50 Million
That isn’t Falk’s first donation to his alma mater either. In 2008 he donated $5 million to Syracuse to start the David B. Falk Centre For Sports Management. Falk negotiated the then-highest contracts in NBA history for Patrick Ewing and Danny Ferry. He additionally negotiated professional sports’ first $100 million contract for Alonzo Mourning as part of an unprecedented free agency period, during which his firm, ACCLAIM, changed the entire salary arrangement of the NBA, negotiating more than $400 million in contracts for the free agent customers in a six day interval.
In January 2007, Falk re-launched ACCLAIM, and today serves as its creator and CEO. He represented only 7 players in 2007, a far cry from the prime of his sports agent career in the 1990s, when he signified as many as 40 players at a time.
