Star shooting guard James Young was a one and done at Kentucky, and his career is just getting started. The Michigan native signed to Roc Nation Sports and got a welcome message from Rihanna.
Yesterday (May 1), Roc Nation Sports revealed the signing with a pic (see it on the flip) of Young and Jay Z. “Roc Nation is proud to welcome James Young to the Roc Nation Sports family!,” read the message.
Rihanna, who is repped by Roc Nation and was spotted sitting next to Young at Nets vs. Raptors playoff game, also sent the 18-year-old a message. She took a break uploading pics of herself and posted a pic of Young on her Instagram with the caption, “I am proud to say that JAMES YOUNG is the newest member of the #ROCNationSports family!!! WELCOME HOME!!! http://rocnation.com/sports/james-young/.”
The other pro basketball players rolling with the Roc include Kevin Durant and Skylar Diggins. Congratulation to James Young.
