Jay-Z and Roc Nation Sports may be new to this, but the moves prove they’re definitely more than true to this sports agency game thus far. After first inking the future mega free agent in baseball in Robinson Cano, the newly-formed, CAA-backed entity snatched up Skylar Diggins, former Notre Dame hoops standout. And how exactly was the news announced? Via their Instagram account, of course.
Diggins was the third pick in this year’s WNBA draft behind Britney Griner and Elena Della Donne. All three are expected to provide something the league has desperately needed for years – a mass influx of talent with the know-how of being not only franchise players, but faces capable of expanding the women’s professional game to new heights.
