Power moves yet again by the Roc-A-Fella, Roc Nation and Def Jam owner Jay-Z, as the news released word today that Oklahoma Thunder guard, Kevin Durant, signed with Roc Nation Sports. The sports agency owned by Jay-Z was founded in April with signed athletes including, former Notre Dame guard Skyler Diggins, New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano, New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith, and possibly New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz in the near future but none to the stature of one of the most endorsed and marketable athletes in the NBA, Kevin Durant. As of now Kevin Durant doesn't need a contract agent because he signed an $85 million extension with the Thunder in 2010 binding him until the closing of the 2015-2016 NBA season. Durant will still be considered as a full-time client. Sources say although Jay-Z is licensed to represent players in contracted negotiations, which was confirmed the NBA and Major League Baseball player unions, Jay-Z doesn't have a license to negotiate NFL player's contracts. But who really cares at this point? I'm sure there will be some loopholes configurated somewhere for the BOSS.
