Houston Rockets star James Harden has a new agent: his mother.
Harden was previously represented by Diana Day of Landmark Sports Agency. Monja Willis, Harden's mother, is now her son's agent, though it's not clear when the new arrangement took effect.
Forbes says Harden pulled down nearly 47-million-dollars last year, making him one of the highest-paid celebrities in the world.
Harden - and his famous beard - made the covers of several video games, including EA Sports’ “NBA Live 18” and 2K Sports' “NBA 2K16."
According to a survey by Sports Business Daily, Harden and his teammate Chris Paul are the NBA's fifth and sixth-most marketable players.
