So far Robinson Cano is the only athlete under Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports, but Hov isn’t anywhere near being done with his all-star roster. We already know that Victor Cruz is on Hov’s radar, but today rumors of another athlete have emerged. Nope, it’s not an NBA, NFL or MLB player. Check out who it is…
The next target for Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports banner is potential No. 1 NHL draft pick Seth Jones, according to sources.
The son of Nets assistant coach and former Nuggets player Popeye Jones is already repped by CAA, Roc Nation’s partner. But sources said Jay-Z’s organization wants to strike a deal to be involved in the star’s marketing and branding, reports The Post’s Kirsten Fleming.
Jones would then benefit from both sides of the CAA and Roc Nation partnership. “When Seth comes to the NHL draft [in Newark, NJ] in June, his family, agents at CAA and Roc Nation are going to have a powwow to see if he’ll sign with them,” a source said. Jones has been a star player in the Western Hockey League.
