Jay-Z and Roc Nation have added Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia to their stable of clients, which already included Robinson Cano, Kevin Durant, Skyler Diggins, Geno Smith, and Victor Cruz. Yahoo’s Rand Getlin noted yesterday that it had been a little bit surprising that Jay-Z hadn’t landed any clients in the NFL Draft — and that he’d tried to and come up short — so this must be welcome news.
Sabathia’s contract runs through 2016 so there probably won’t be any immediate rewards in that regard, but perhaps the partnership will bring about some new endorsement opportunities.
UPDATE: If you’re into these sorta nuances:
Roc Nation shares Victor Cruz (w/CAA & IMG) and shares Cano (w/CAA). Won’t share Sabathia w/another firm
