The Oklahoma City Thunder superstar posted a photo on his Instagram account of himself and Jay-Z signing the paperwork to make his agency change official...... Durant left his previous agent, Landmark Sports, earlier this month.
Durant, 24, was second in the NBA in scoring this season and averaged 28.1 points, 7.9 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game while shooting 51% from the field. He finished second in NBA MVP voting in 2012-13 and was named first-team All-NBA for the fourth straight season.
New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano, New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith and Tulsa Shock guard Skylar Diggins have already joined the firm, which is a partnership with Creative Artists Agency Sports launched earlier this year.

While Ye is expected to top the chart, Cole’s first-week estimates are not too far behind.------
YOUR ONE-DAYS: The top of next week’s chart will look a little better than in recent weeks, with Kanye West and J. Cole scoring the #2 and #4 debuts of the year. Justin Timberlake (968k) remains untouched for the biggest first week thus far in 2013. Daft Punk (339k) will move into the third spot following next week’s chart. Here are this week’s key debuts: Kanye West (Roc-a-Fella/Def Jam/IDJ) 375-400k J. Cole (Roc Nation/Columbia) 290-315k Mac Miller (Rostrum) 95-105k Kelly Rowland (Republic) 60-65k (HITS Daily Double)----
Last week, a music sales expert said Miller and Cole’s solo efforts were destined to debut on the Nielsen SoundScan rundown but nowhere close to Ye.-------
June 18 sees the release of three hip-hop sets that are all on course for sizable sales debuts: Kanye West’s “Yeezus,” J. Cole’s “Born Sinner” and Mac Miller’s “Watching Movies With the Sound Off.” According to early sales forecasts from industry sources, “Yeezus” might sell 500,000 copies in its first week. Behind him will likely be “Born Sinner” with perhaps 150,000 to 200,000. “Watching Movies With the Sound Off” could sell as much as 100,000. If West and Cole both sell over 100,000 — which seems a sure thing — it will mark the first time two rap albums have debuted with more than 100,000 in the same week since November of 2010.
