Jay-Z is kicking things off in his foray into sports management with Roc Nation Sports, and 2013 NHL Draft prospect Seth Jones is at the top of the list as one of his first clients.
According to the NY Post’s Page Six, Roc Nation Sports is hoping to land a deal with Jones to be involved in the star’s marketing and branding.
The son of Nets assistant coach and former Nuggets player, Popeye Jones, is already repped by CAA, Roc Nation’s partner. If a deal is inked, 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 is such a touted prospect, he’s expected to go #1, making him the first black player taken #1 overall into the NHL.
