The Landmark Sports Agency, owned by NBA agent ROB PELINKA, has signed two projected NBA Draft lottery picks -- Syracuse F WESLEY JOHNSON and North Carolina F ED DAVIS -- for representation. L.A.-based Landmark will represent both players on and off the court. Johnson was ranked No. 4 and Davis was ranked No. 11 yesterday by website nbadraft.net. Pelinka is best known as agent to Lakers G KOBE BRYANT. Meanwhile, NBA agent DAVID FALK and his company FAME have signed Georgetown F GREG MONROE for representation on and off the court. Monroe was ranked No. 6 yesterday by nbadraft.net. “He will definitely be a lottery pick and hopefully a top 10 pick,” Falk said yesterday. Falk last week signed Ohio State G EVAN TUNER, who is projected on most draft boards as the No. 2 prospect in next month’s draft.
