James Michael McAdoo’s Agent Highlights Overseas Basketball; Landed McAdoo Japan’s Biggest Contract

Overseas basketball presents a unique set of challenges. American players must navigate language barriers, adjust to differing styles of play and adapt to a new culture and way of life, often with a family in tow. It can also be highly rewarding, according to Slash International founder Charles Misuraca, whose agency represents former North Carolina stars Kenny Williams, Deon Thompson, Marcus Ginyard and James Michael McAdoo.

In an interview with Inside Carolina, Misuraca provided unique insight into the personal and business side of overseas basketball, using McAdoo’s newfound stardom in Japan to highlight non-NBA basketball careers.

In 2021, Misuraca orchestrated McAdoo’s 3-year, multi-million deal with Sun Rockers Shibuya, the largest deal in the history of Japanese basketball for an American player. Through 50 games this season, McAdoo is averaging 15.0 points and 8.4 rebounds while shooting a team-high 60.0 percent from the field. He plays alongside former Duke star Ryan Kelly, his co-host on The Better Blue Podcast.

Here’s Misuraca’s in-depth breakdown on the life and careers of international basketball players:
