Jay-Z continues to expand his Roc Nation Sports roster and today Yahoo! Sports reports that Kevin Durant might be the next star-athlete to sign with the newly founded agency.
“KD doesn’t want a traditional NBA agent anymore,” a league source with knowledge of his thinking told Yahoo! Sports on Friday night. “He wants Jay-Z to handle his branding. …He had a chance to be with his idol and couldn’t say no.”
If the deal goes through Kevin would without a doubt be the highest profile athlete inked by the agency. Other recent signings include MLB All-Star Robinson Cano, WNBA standout Skylar Diggins, and NFL prospect Geno Smith. Currently, the former Brooklyn Nets minority shareholder has yet to be certified by the National Basketball Players Association.
