"The Sports agents is similar to what?"

They run the gamut from absolutely necessary to thievery. Most
athletes don't know how to negotiate a contract, let alone for the
sums today. They don't know how to invest large amounts of money or
how to deal with the sports bureaucracy and team management. At best,
agents handle negotiations, investments and advise players on league
policies. At worst, players never see the large sums newspapers print.
Sports leagues have players associations that have guidelines for what
qualifies as an agent. The NFL and MLB players associations are
probably the best. Olympic athletes also face several levels of
bureaucracy from sports federations to the national and international
Olympic organizations. Agents that specialize in this area may help.
Sometimes families handle it themselves.
