Who will be the next big name athlete to sign with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports management company? They have just inked NBA superstar Kevin Durant to join their growing stable of high-profile players. Now Durant will join New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano as the top athletes on board so far.
Roc Nation has also signed New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith and WNBA rookie Skylar Diggins. It’s not official yet, but New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is said to be another member of the Roc Nation Sports Family.
It hasn’t taken Jay-Z very long to start reeling in some of the biggest names in sports today and I’m sure there’s a lot of nervous sports agents around the country wondering if one of their clients will be the next big signing by R.S. Nation! There’s no doubt in my mind that Jay-Z will make this new venture a smashing success because he’s a very good business man with a proven track record.
I know others have tried to make the transition from the Hip-Hop industry into representing star athletes in the past and created nothing but a big mess. The Ricky Williams saga is a perfect example of that, but that won’t be the case here. Trust me on that!
