United Talent Agency, the Hollywood firm that represents Angelina Jolie, Harrison Ford and Will Ferrell, is pushing into professional sports in a deal with LeBron James’s agent.

Rich Paul’s Klutch Sports represents James, Anthony Davis and several other NBA superstars. UTA, which has long wanted to compete in sports with Creative Artists Agency and Endeavor, made a “significant investment” in Klutch, the companies said Wednesday. They didn’t provide more specific terms.
