It was reported yesterday that Victor Cruz would follow fellow New York superstar Robinson Cano to Jay-Z's new sports management firm.

Cruz, a restricted free agent, is now officially a part of Creative Artists Agency (CAA). The Giants wide receiver recently hired CAA's Tom Condom to represent him, and it is expected he will handle Cruz's contract negotiations with the team.

In addition to his salsa dance, Cruz celebrated his touchdowns last season by flashing the Roc hand sign, which looks like he's forming a diamond. Cruz declined speaking about his future endeavors, but sources said Cruz's actions were his way of notifying people he was joining Jay-Z's Roc Nation Sports family.

In case you missed it, on Tuesday, news began to trickle out of New York City that Nets minority owner, Jay Z, has launched Roc Nation Sports. Roc Nation Sports is a sports agency who already made a splash by signing New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano.

Apparently, that may only be the first move in what is an event that could eventually shake up the Brooklyn Nets ownership group.

In light of Thanksgiving, the Nets franchise has three things to be thankful for this holiday season. The Nets are thankful to have a new home in Brooklyn, have Deron Williams on board as the face of the franchise, and have an ownership group that has improved the team?s talent on the court and marketability off the court.

When the Nets moved to Brooklyn the dynamic of the franchise improved significantly for the better. Brooklyn has wanted a professional sports team since the Dodgers left the borough in 1957.

For as long as we can remember, people have talked about the fact that Jay Z has become the face of the Brooklyn Nets, despite the fact that he's a minority owner.

Repeatedly, it has been said that he owns 1/15 of one percent of the team, and that's something that we've echoed on this very site.
