As expected, Jay-Z has divested his ownership stake in the Brooklyn Nets in order to avoid a conflict of interest with his new sports management venture Roc Nation Sports. He announced the move in a letter on the Life+Times site:
Being a member of the Nets organization surpassed some of my greatest ambitions. It was never about an investment; it was about the NETS and Brooklyn. My job as an owner is over but as a fan it has just begun. I’m a Brooklyn Net forever. It’s been an honor to work with Mikhail Prokhorov, Dmitry Razumov, Christophe Charlier, ONEXIM Sports and Entertainment, Brett Yormark and all the wonderful people involved in making the Nets first class. My sincerest thanks goes to Bruce Ratner, who first introduced the idea of moving the Nets to Brooklyn. A thank you and deepest appreciation goes to the fans. You are the lifeblood of any team.
The Nets have made their mark on the NBA and as they enter a new era, Roc Nation does as well; as we embark on Roc Nation Sports. Our newest endeavor is committed to building the brands of professional athletes as we have done for some of today’s top music artists. For Roc Nation Sports to function at its full potential, NBA rules stipulate that I relinquish my ownership in the Brooklyn Nets. It was a tough decision but as I stated earlier, it’s not about ownership. Congratulations to The Nets on a great season and making the playoffs! I will always be a Brooklyn Net.
Yesterday evening Yahoo! reported that Jay-Z plans to give up his small ownership share in the Brooklyn Nets in order to avoid a conflict of interest with his new sports management firm Roc Nation Sports. An unidentified source indicated that Jay hopes to have the deal done by June, which would allow him to approach players entering this year’s NBA draft. In the following clip, Bloomberg finance reporter Dominic Chu speaks on Jay’s contributions to the team and why this move is necessary for Roc Nation Sports to move forward.
Perhaps more importantly, Jay can finally stop pretending to like the Nets and go back to rooting for the only NYC basketball team that matters.
