Representing athletes is rapidly becoming Jay-Z’s world … and
there isn’t much other agents can do about it.
The hip-hop mogul has just about everything and still is adding
to his collection, now athletes, through his Roc Nation Sports
agency. The most recent client reportedly is Oklahoma Thunder star
Kevin Durant is leaving Landmark Sports. Sources expect him to
join Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports.
While Roc Nation wasn’t immediately ready to comment, Landmark
confirmed Durant’s exit.
Rob Pelinka told USA Today in a statement: “We are honored and
blessed to have worked on behalf of Kevin, for a brief period of
time. “He is an amazing person and athlete, and we are proud of our
work and service towards advancing his brand in a manner that
reflects the mutual qualities we share with Kevin. We wish him
nothing but success in his future endeavors.”
Jay already has the Yankees’ Robinson Cano, the Jets’ Geno Smith
and the WNBA’s Skylar Diggins, and reportedly is reeling in the
Giants’ Victor Cruz and the Eagles’ DeSean Jackson. So who or what
is next for Jay-Z to conquer?
