It looks as though Rihanna may have been doing more than distracting the Raptors last week, when she sat pretty courtside while cheering on the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays. Remember we mentioned she was sitting next to Kentucky baller James Young who had just entered the draft and was being sought out by Jay’s sports agency? Well just call her “The Closer” because the Kentucky guard has officially signed with Jay’s Roc Nation Sports agency! Rihanna broke the news on her Instagram earlier today: I am proud to say that JAMES YOUNG is the newest member of the #ROCNationSports family!!! WELCOME HOME!!! With both Rihanna and Beyoncé by his side, Jay’s about to scoop all the fresh-outta-college players.
Other high-profile athletes who have signed to Roc Nation Sports include Robinson Cano, Skyler Diggins, Kevin Durant, Geno Smith and Victor Cruz.
