(Newser) – 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.

The most hilarious part of Jay Z's ownership is that it's considered "a stake" at .1608%. While his ownership stake is sweet fvck all, it certainly led to some entertaining ownership brags in both his own, and Kanye's songs.
