Jay-Z’s web site, Life And Times, also confirmed the news, simply stating:

Join us in welcoming Skylar Diggins to the Roc Nation family as the WNBA’s Tulsa Shock player signs with Roc Nation Sports.

Roc Nation shares the following bio about Skylar:

Diggins is the only player in Notre Dame history to be a four-time All-America selection, earning consensus first-team honors in 2012 and 2013 to join Ruth Riley as the only Fighting Irish cagers ever to pull off that feat. In addition, she broke new ground in the Notre Dame history books as a three-time NCAA Regional Most Outstanding Player (2010-Dayton, 2011-Raleigh, 2012-Norfolk), a two-time BIG EAST Player of the Year and a two-time recipient of the Nancy Lieberman Award, given annually to the nation’s top point guard (the past two seasons making her just the third two-time honoree in the award’s history), along with being the 2013 recipient of the Dawn Staley Award.

As most of you, Roc Nations Sports was founded by Jay-Z and co-partner, Creative Artists Agency, earlier this year. The company is billed as a “full-service sports management company”. Their first major move was to sign New York Yankees All-Star second baseman Robinson Canó, and adding  New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz. Rumor has it Roc Nation Sports is also interested in signing ice hockey prospect Seth Jones. Anywho, congrats Skylar!
