LeBron Unlikely To Sign With Jay-Z

Ever since rapper Jay-Z announced that he would be making a foray into sports representation with his Roc Nation company, there has been speculation that he could sign longtime friend LeBron James.  However, there is no reason to believe that James will abandon Klutch Sports to sign on with Jay-Z, a source tells Sam Amick of USA Today.

The theory that James would hook on with Jay-Z's company centers around the star's relationship with William "Worldwide Wes" Wesley.  Wesley is a part of CAA Sports, the company that has partnered with Jay-Z but also lost James as a client in September when he left for the newly formed Klutch Sports, captained by former CAA agent Rich Paul.

However, James has long since moved on from the "Worldwide Wes" chapter of his life and according to one source, the two hardly, if ever, speak these days.  Without that bridge, there's little reason to believe that James would consider a reunion with CAA.  Even if that connection was still in place, it would still be a stretch for him to come back to his old agency less than a year after parting ways.
