Hakeem Nicks signs with Jay-Z’s RocNation
Rap mogul Jay-Z has made a splash on the market since opening his sports agency, RocNation, ranging from baseball star Robinson Cano, who then signed a 240 million dollar deal with the Seattle Mariners, and Giants wideout Victor Cruz. He has now added another member to the client list, and it’s someone Cruz is pretty familiar with, teammate Hakeem Nicks.
Nicks confirmed the news in a tweet:
I’m proud to become a part of the #RocNationSports family!

There is little doubt that Cruz’ affiliation with RocNation played a role in Nicks coming aboard. However, Nicks remaining with the Giants could definitely be classified as “up in the air.” Nicks has constantly battled the injury bug, and seemingly never got into a rhythm last year. Sharing an agent with Cruz may be advantageous for the Giants, though from the aforementioned Cano deal, it does seem that Jay-Z likes to get his clients a ton of cash, and from their rocky relationship, the Giants may not end up with the best offer on the table.
