Jay Z Can Officially Represent NBA Players
"Boy from the hood but got White House clearance." - "Open Letter"
According to Sports Business Daily, Jay Z has been officially certified by the National Basketball Players Association, the organization that represents NBA players's interests, to negotiate with NBA teams on behalf of his clients.
Despite having signed NBA Star Kevin Durant earlier this summer to his new Roc Nation sports agency venture, Jay Z was required by the NBPA to unload his assets in the Brooklyn Nets and the Barclays Center before he would satisfy proper requirements for certification. Hov is now free to represent his players in negotiations without any conflict of interest.
