Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie has signed with Roc Nation Sports, per an announced on Friday. Dinwiddie makes the jump with his agent, Raymond Brothers, who was hired as Director of Basketball and Sports Technology/Specialty Projects for the company founded by entertainment mogul, Shawn Carter, better known as Jay-Z.

The move comes months after Dinwiddie’s new teammate Kyrie Irving made headlines with his announcement to join Roc Nation. To date, Dinwiddie is the 23rd person associated with the NBA to be represented by RNS — 22 players including WNBA star Skylar Diggins-Smith, and ESPN on-air talent Jalen Rose. (Jay-Z used to have part ownership of the Nets, but he had to sell it in order to start his agency.)

It has been a busy month for the Nets star, who recently became the first pro athlete to turn his contract into a digital investment vehicle. Dinwiddie’s company and token name, “$SD8,” is expected to go public for investors and backed by a three-year, $34.36 million contract extension. The scenario gives Dinwiddie more money upfront to immediately invest and a larger return for the burrower in the future.
