A lot of sports fans in Oklahoma have been nervous that their star basketball player, Kevin Durant, will be leaving the team after signing with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports. Durant recently spoke with The Oklahoman newspaper and assured fans that just because he switched representation, doesn’t mean he’s leaving the team.
“He has nothing to do with if I’m going to leave OKC or none of that,” Durant told the newspaper. “I heard that before, so put that out on the table. He has nothing to do with that. He knows his lane with me. Their team knows their lane with me. And they’re letting me handle the basketball part. I would tell fans not to worry about that at all.”
Durant is the first NBA player to sign with Roc Nation Sports’. It’s the third agent for the young star in the six years he spent playing professional ball. He was represented by Goodwin Sports and, most recently, Landmark Sports before joining Jay-Z’s agency.
