Published May 20, 2013

Jay-Z is solidifying his image as a sports agent. His Roc Nation Sports surprised the recently signed WNBA hooper Skylar Diggins with a brand new Mercedes-Benz in honor of her graduation from the University of Notre Dame, Sunday (May 19).

The Tulsa Shock point guard posted a photo of her new car on Instagram, and quoted her boss on Twitter: "I got 99 problems, but a Benz ain't one."

Diggins, a 2013 third overall WNBA draft pick, signed to the Roc in April. She is one of a few burgeoning sports figures to join Hov's venture into the sports management world. New York Yankees star Robinson Cano was the first client to sign to Roc Nation Sports, and Jay has been busy making power moves ever since.

Aside from the baseball star, the company locked down New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, and is reportedly eyeing Brazilian soccer players Neymar and Luca Moura, plus NHL hopeful Seth Jones.
