Reports say that NBA officials are set to investigate New Jersey Nets part owner Jay-Z — for his recent visit to the University of Kentucky’s Basketball team’s locker room. According to CBSSports.com, Jay was photographed and videotaped congratulating the Wildcats after their NCAA Elite 8 win this past weekend. Kentucky has a few NBA prospects on their roster, including freshman Terrance Jones and Brandon Knight, who are both projected as lottery picks by some mock draft sites.
- The league does not allow NBA personnel to make contact with college players who are potential lottery picks before draft. As partial owner of the Nets, Jay may be fined for this infraction.
