NBA probing Jay-Z’s visit to Kentucky locker room

An NBA spokesman confirms that the league is investigating

Jay-Z’s presence in Kentucky’s locker room after the Wildcats

clinched a Final Four berth.

The rapper visited the players after their victory over North

Carolina on Sunday at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J, home of

the Nets. Jay-Z is a part-owner of the team and attended the Nets’

120-116 loss at New York on Wednesday.

NBA rules prohibit team personnel from having contact with

players who are not yet draft eligible, and spokesman Tim Frank

told the Associated Press the league is looking into it.

The investigation was first reported by CBSSports.com.
