William Sydney "Wes" Wesley (b. August 14, 1964 in Camden, New Jersey) is a consultant for Creative Artists Agency. Known as "World Wide Wes" or simply "Wes," he is most noted for his close relationships with numerous high-profile National Basketball Association (NBA) players and team owners, college basketball head coaches and their agents. Considered by many observers within the industry as a power broker and one of the most influential men in the business side of basketball, he forged those strong ties without being associated with any business entity.
He is associated with many of the league's most prominent players, including Allen Iverson, Richard Hamilton, Michael Jordan and LeBron James. Wesley is a longtime client of Iverson and James's agent, the Philadelphia attorney Leon Rose.
