Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd has purchased Jay Z's stake in the team, The New York Post reports.

Jay Z started Roc Nation Sports agency in April and has since signed Kevin Durant. To represent NBA players, though, Jay Z needed to sell his stake in the Nets.

The New York Times reported last August that Jay Z owned only one-fifteenth of a percent of the Nets but had a major influence on the team's off-court product.
