Less than three weeks before the beginning of NBA free agency, six-time all-star Kyrie Irving has cut ties with his longtime agent, Jeff Wechsler, and is expected to sign with Roc Nation Sports — the company founded by rapper Jay-Z.
Irving will be an unrestricted free agent after declining his player option with the Boston Celtics. The two teams in New York — the Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets — are both interested in signing him. Jay-Z previously had an ownership stake in the Nets, but his ties with Roc Nation Sports forced him to relinquish ownership in 2013.
