CC Sabathia is now aboard Roc Nation

For his entire career, CC Sabathia had been with Legacy Sports Group - but now, the New York Yankees pitcher is joining Jay Z's Roc Nation family. He's coming aboard a pretty fierce roster, too, which includes Kevin Durant, Geno Smith, Victor Cruz, Skylar Diggins and Robinson Cano. Roc Nation announced the deal Jan. 16, posting a photo on Twitter of the star player signing his contract next to the rapper, who founded the agency.

"CC exemplifies everything Roc Nation looks for in an athlete and a partner," said Roc Nation Sports President Juan Perez in a statement to ESPN.

So what does the deal entail? Roc Nation will now rep Sabathia, who also has a major endorsement deal with the Jordan brand, both on and off the field. He has three years left on his contract with the team, but according to ESPN, Jay Z and Roc Nation have plans to negotiate that when it's up in 2017.

What athlete do you want to see sign with Roc Nation next?
