Jay-Z to sell his ownership in Nets & become a NBA agent

quote:

Jay-Z – whose real name is Shawn Carter – owns less than 1 percent of the Nets, but has been a central public figure in the franchise's marketing and move from New Jersey to Brooklyn.

Selling his share of the Nets is a necessary prelude for Jay-Z to obtain his National Basketball Players Association certification as an agent


Rival agents are anxious over the possibilities of Jay-Z on the recruiting trail, believing the lure of his iconic business and cultural standing will have a major impact on attracting top prospects and current league stars.

I would be surprised if he dealt with anyone other than the max contract players.

If any of his players signed with the Nets, red flags would go up everywhere

Exactly. Rookie contracts are typically scaled a certain way also. You would also think he along with his team would know a thing or two about negotiating contracts. Smart businessman.

Why? He wouldn't own any part of the team anymore. Any sort of kick backs could be part of the contract.

He owns less than one percent of the nets? That probably doesn't even get you season ticket tickets court side. Sounds like him being the face of the new look nets was just a publicity thing.

Aren't NBA contracts (fairly) structured/pre-determined anyway?

NBA GMs and Lawyers would take him to school during negotiations, unless NBA contracts are more set than i thought

I still wouldnt want my financial future in the hands of a guy with that little experience
