Jay Z can now officially represent NBA players as an agent. According to “Sports Business Journal,” the hip-hop mogul has shown the National Basketball Players Association evidence proving that he’s ditched his share of ownership with the Brooklyn Nets. The move gives him the green light to fully represent players. While Jay became licensed as an agent over the summer, he had to first get rid of his Nets stake to become eligible to negotiate contracts on behalf of players. Earlier this month, it was reported that Jay would be unloading part of his Nets share to the Nets’ head coach Jason Kidd.
Since beginning his sports management agency, Roc Nation Sports, Jay has signed Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant, New York Yankee player Robinson Cano, New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith and WNBA star Skylar Diggins.
