Jay Z Sells His Brooklyn Nets Stake to Jason Kidd

Earlier this year, it was reported that Jay Z would be selling his stake in the Brooklyn Nets due to a possible "conflict of interest" when he started his Roc Nation Sports agency. Well it appears the hip-hop mogul has found a buyer, and it happens to be former NBA player and current Brooklyn Nets head coach, Jason Kidd. Through this, the percentage of how much Jay Z actually owned in the Nets was also unveiled, which turns out to be .07 percent (1/15th of a percent), which was sold for roughly $500,000 the New York Post indicates. Leave thoughts below.

    If you know anything at all, you know that Jay-Z was only brought on to help with the marketing/image of the team. He helped them attract certain players & made them "Cool" with Brooklyn's Urban community. In return he received the $ from the opening shows at the Barclay Center, A deal with 2k sports & most importantly creditability and inside info that he is now using for his sports agency.
