Impending free agent and Philadelphia 76ers guard Alec Burks has changed agencies, as he will now be represented by Octagon Basketball.

Octagon represents other big name players including Stephen Curry, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Bam Adebayo.

Burks was previously represented by You First Sports.

The 29-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent (UFA), so he will be eligible to sign with any team in this unpredictable, upcoming offseason.

Burks, who was traded from the Golden State Warriors to the 76ers at the this year’s trade deadline, averaged 12.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game in 18 regular season games with the 76ers.

He then averaged 10.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs against the Boston Celtics.
