Yesterday, doll face WNBA recruit Skylar Diggins was pictured throwing up pyramid hand signs while having folks thinking she was repping for the Deltas. Come to find out, she’s the new signee of Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports, which has already signed New York Yankees’ second baseman Robinson Cano and is eying New York Giants Victor Cruz.
Next season, Skylar (who holds the record for all time lead scorer at Notre Dame University) will be hitting the court as part of the WNBA’s Tulsa Shock, however, it’s her marketability off the court that is a huge draw for Roc Nation Sports. They will assist her in bringing in huge endorsement deals with corporate brands (including Nike), as well as television and movie roles during the off season.

Posing under a picture of Rihanna, next to a picture of Melanie Fiona and throwing up the Roc diamond, Skylar tweeted about her new agent, saying, “It’s the ROC in here! ShockNation meets RocNation.”
Meanwhile, her biggest celebrity fan Lil Wayne hasn’t sent out a public congrats but he’ll probably be rooting for her on the sidelines when she hits the court this Fall.
Earlier this year, he tweeted:
