Rap superstar and entrepreneur Jay Z is wasting no time making a name for himself in the sports world with his new Rocnation Sports Agency. After huge baseball and football signings of Robinson Cano and Victor Cruz respectively, rumors are now swirling that Jay’s first NBA client could be University of Kentucky’s star center Nerlens Noel.
Jay Z is rumored to have a very close relationship with UK head coach John Calipari so this rumor could carry heavy weight. And even though Noel tore his ACL this season, he is still viewed as the #1 draft pick in the NBA. So why wouldn’t Jay go after him? Seems like a given to me.
Signing NFL players may be a bit of a hassle for Jay-Z, but that doesn’t mean he can’t focus his attention on signing potential NBA superstars. And to further fuel rumors, NetsDaily.com (@NetsDaily) tweeted on April 13, 2013:
Remember Jay has very good relationship with Coach Cal.
