His job is to take care of all your needs, including important steps such as signing a contract with Israeli basketball teams, make sure that you manage well in this team, and in the field.
The agent should identify both strengths and weaknesses of the player he represents; make the most of the advantages and find ways for improving the weak points. The agent knows to find good collaborations and to negotiate. A good agent is very emotionally intelligent, and a skilled diplomat, as some of the job requires politics between basketball groups and players.
Therefore, one of your top priorities as a beginner is to look for a recommended and excellent agent in Israel. Do not haste, but pick the best one you can find. Start reading up agencies and collecting recommendations about good agents around Israel.
With all that however, a part of the whole agent -player relationship, as in any other relationship, depends on chemistry. If the agent has good chemistry with the plater he represents, the chances for successful collaboration increase.
