After being the unofficial face of the franchise, and a constant presence in the move from New Jersey to Brooklyn, Jay-Z has looked to sell his minority share of the Nets as his next venture is sports management with his Roc Nation Sports agency.

They have already signed some big names including All-NBA scoring phenom, Kevin Durant, who announced he would be leaving his former agent, Rob Pelinka, and signing on with Jigga’s crew.  The highly marketable WNBA third overall pick, Skylar Diggins, is another notable signee in the basketball world.   Although it’s unknown if Jay will be the one actually signing clients, or just the figurehead of the agency, but his application to become an NBA agent has officially been approve.

From ESPN:

Ron Berkowitz, a spokesman for Roc Nation Sports, confirmed to ESPN.com that, as of this week, Jay-Z is now licensed to work as an NBA agent. Juan Perez, president of Roc Nation Sports, also is now certified with the National Basketball Players Association.

Roc Nation Sports has been active in the MLB as they signed Yankee Robinson Cano, and the Roc mogul is in the final stages of finalizing becoming an NFL agent as well with Geno Smith reportedly signing on.
