Jay Z has to get rid of his Brooklyn Nets shares, and it looks like he might have found a buyer: head coach Jason Kidd, the man who first suggested he buy into the team 10 years ago. Anonymous sources tell the NY Post that the rapper will exchange half of his stake in the team with Kidd for around $500,000. "Other owners want to give Jason a part ownership of the team, and urged Jay to sell his shares to him," says a source. The other half of the reported .1608% Jay Z owns has already been purchased by another minority owner in the team, reports NetsDaily. (Read more Jay Z stories.)
