      It says OFFICIALLY bruh. Yahoo has the same story online today . He neva signed anything before. He couldnt have signed that far back….. Jay just got approved to be a agent last week.

  • My guess is that Jay gets a commision based on KD’s contract, so definitely not a bad power move.

      Technically J aint the agent some chic is. She will handle contract negotiations and such. Of course A cut goes to the company which is J but not directly to him. Jay will handle the branding side of Kevin Durant and those athletes. Commercials, endorsements. If he wants to really get paid off them then he has to hustle them up great opportunities which he probally wont have a hard time doing. So he”ll have to create NEW avenues that they dont already have in place that pay the athletes so he gets paid.Their old managers will still collect off of their current endorsement deals they have.

      • A glorified, but high paid middleman?

        Is Jay signing them to 360 deals?

      • Bifsquad3

        Jay is an official Licensed NBA agent now. So he can be. I neva heard of the otha chick

        He can broker the deals hisself. Which i think he is capable of

      • John Holladay

        He is a Licensed agent but he wont be handling athletic side of things. THe company he’s partnered with will handle the contract negotiations. SPorts agents get 3% of contracts. In order to get to get paid they have to generate other avenues for the athlete. The female that runs the company he’s partnered with is well respected already in the sports world which is why they handle contract negotiations. and the fact that Kevin Durant had already signed his Basketball contract before signing with J, J and his company see no revenue from that

        He can negotiate the deals hisself. Which i think he is capable of

    I guess people want easy corporate connections and endorsement deals… But on the real people should realize by now that Jay is not a risk taker , he is an opportunist that’s his style of hustling… not that it is a bad thing, Warren Buffet did good with the same formula … but when you deal with this type of people they will drop your ass the second you are having a bad time… we are talking about Sports here injuries will come, some will go in a short period of time, some will take a bit longer and some will STAY, see how Jay is already talking about Kevin Durant “legend in the making” skills… Well I hope these people are not being fooled by Jay aura and know what they want…

    Will KD ever win an NBA Championship? Will KD ever be the dominate force we all believed he would be & has shown flashes of being? will KD ever develop n2 the player that can & will put his team on his back & carry them? Will OKC ever & I do mean ever properly supply him with the needed components 2 in sure an NBA title? Will OKC ever even be KDs’ team or will Westbrook remain dominate? These & many other questions maybe answered someday. Until than Yaaaaaa Sean just got richer now I can & many others can buy the home car & start the bizzness we been dreaming of!!! Thanks Jay for fortifying our futures!

  • Will Jay-Z ever go back to assisting the growth of new talent? He seem to only want to invest in already established celebs.

    • Bifsquad3

      Umm Geno Smith Just got drafted. He signed him to a deal. I think thats a start

    • dexter

      lol funny… naw he all over the place chasing that mighty…!!! you all noe the rest. see long as he looks good & gets paid is all that counts… lol
