According to the Hollywood Reporter, King James jumped ship from Creative Artists Agency and is now signed to competitor William Morris Endeavor for his talent ventures.

Sources close to the situation say James finalized a deal with WME sometime this week and that the break from his old talent agency was amicable. James will remain under Klutch Sports Group for his on-court business, while Fenway Sports Group and LRMR will handle his off-the-court deals.

The 29-year-old Miami Heat forward will be represented by WME partner Brad Slater, whose clients include retired athletes Michael Strahan and Ray Lewis

James has a bunch of projects in the works, including a six-episode spot on the Starz series Survivor's Remorse and a feature in the Kevin Hart basketball flick, Ballers. James and Hart will play brothers. Production on the Universal Pictures/Imagine Entertainment film will begin this summer.
