On top of Puma’s announcement on Monday (June 19) that the company was getting involved in basketball again, the global director of brand and marketing Adam Petrick also revealed that JAY-Z will be joining as a creative consultant.
"We've been working with Roc Nation for quite some time. They've been great partners to us for several years. We've done many different deals with many different ambassadors,” Petrick told Complex.
It was previously reported that the rapper was named president of basketball operations, but Petrick later clarified to Complex that his “official designation is creative consultant.” Another representative also confirmed that he will not play a role in selecting players for the Puma basketball division, which was also reported.
