This summer represents a milestone moment for the young agency: NBA star Kevin Durant becomes a free agent July 1, the biggest chance yet for Roc Nation to show it’s more than flash and bravado.
“We know this is a big deal and a big moment in his career,” said Rich Kleiman, Durant’s agent with Roc Nation, who worked with hip-hop stars such as Wale in a past professional life. “We also have to be his guiding light in this. We can’t let the pressure of the situation be bigger than it is. Obviously, we understand all eyes are looking at him and looking at his decisions, and people want to see how we’re going to handle it, too.”
