Jay-Z’s Agency Lands Kevin Durant

[ESPN]

Roc Nation Sports, the sports agency founded in April by Jay-Z, on Monday officially scored its most marketable name in Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant.

The firm’s spokesman Ron Berkowitz confirmed the news, and Durant later tweeted out a picture on Monday afternoon of he and Jay-Z signing the papers. ESPN.com initially reported on June 8 that the partnership was expected.

“Grateful for this opportunity with Roc Nation Sports,” Durant said, in the text above the tweeted picture. “It’s go time.”

“He has a 90.5 free throw shooting rate, the youngest player in NBA history to join the 50-40-90 club,” Jay-Z was quoted as saying, above the picture. “A giving individual and a legend in the making. What more can I say?”

The move was expected for two weeks, since Durant told his former agent Rob Pelinka that he was jumping ship and wanted to try partnering with the power of Jay-Z.
