The athlete may be the most marketable and most recognizable player to sign on with the budding sports agency. Durant tweeted out a photo of the signing with his new representer, Jigga Man.
Durant stated in his tweet, “Grateful for this opportunity with Roc Nation Sports, It’s go time.”
“He has a 90.5 free throw shooting rate, the youngest player in NBA history to join the 50-40-90 club,” Jay-Z adds. “A giving individual and a legend in the making. What more can I say?”
ESPN reported the news earlier today. Just last week, the NBA and Major League Baseball’s players unions confirmed that Jay-Z was officially licensed to represent players in contract negotiations.
