Our History & Philosophy.

A Commitment to Excellence and Player-Centric Representation.

Established in 2012, 13 BASKETBALL MANAGEMENT was forged through the collaborative vision of Paola Marras, a licensed FIBA Agent, Jorge Nelson Rifatti an experienced scout, and Marco Florio, an accredited FIP Agent. Since our inception, we have steadily etched a mark as a distinguished agency, transcending borders to represent players on a worldwide stage.

Our relentless pursuit of excellence is not just a mission; it’s a commitment that has driven us to dedicate significant efforts over the past few years. Our focus has been on seamlessly integrating our services among the most important European agencies, solidifying our presence at the top of the basketball world.

At 13 BASKETBALL MANAGEMENT, we adhere to a foundational principle that every player under our representation holds equal importance. This commitment transcends mere rhetoric; it is the cornerstone of our professional ethic.

We recognize that the player-agent dynamic is more than a business engagement; it is a partnership built on mutual understanding and trust. Our ongoing endeavor is to surpass the confines of a traditional professional relationship, aspiring to cultivate a level of trust and friendship that transcends the confines of the basketball court.

Through our experiences, we have witnessed the transformative power of genuine relationships. It is not just about negotiating contracts; it is about navigating the various facets of a player’s journey, understanding their aspirations, and supporting them in both their professional and personal endeavors.

Our commitment to building lasting connections is reflected in our daily interactions and long-term vision. We aspire for our relationships to stand as a testament to trust, integrity, and genuine friendship. As we embark on this journey together, we look forward to not just being representatives but trusted allies in your pursuit of success.

Meet your team.
