Predicting Next Wave of NBA Stars to Sign with Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports

Jay-Z has gone from being the extremely visible minority shareholder of the Brooklyn Nets to being the face of one of the hottest agencies in sports after landing his first big NBA player, Kevin Durant.

Durant announced that he would be leaving Landmark Sports, which represented him for the past year, and the announcement that he's joining Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports is expected any day now.

The recently formed agency has picked up a few big names in its infancy, including Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees, Skylar Diggins of the Tulsa Shock and Geno Smith of the New York Jets.

Obviously Durant is their biggest signing yet, and it would only make sense that they continue to land players around the league, especially with Jay-Z leading the way.

Having such a visible and well-respected figurehead atop the company has to do wonders for their recruiting process, and it probably doesn't hurt that most of their prospective clients are Jay-Z fans as well.

Moving forward, Roc Nation Sports will likely turn into one of the biggest multi-sport agencies and prove to be one of the biggest players in the NBA.
