Alex Rodriguez is known for his work on the baseball diamond, but his money is about to get involved in some b-ball.
A-Rod is currently in negotiations to purchase the Minnesota Timberwolves basketball team. He isn’t going in along, because his business partner Marc Lore is on the deal as well.
The pair wrote a statement to confirm their interest in purchasing the organization.
“We look forward to entering this phase of the process with Glen Taylor. Our respect for him and the legacy he has built lays an amazing foundation for what is to come. We are excited by the prospect of getting to know the Timberwolves organization the talented team and their incredible fans.”
We’ll have to see if A-Rod gets into the NBA. Anything can happen in a big-money deal like that.
It’s not unheard of for athletes to take interest in sports outside of their primary profession. Alex Rodriguez has proved himself on the baseball field. He very well might get a chance to run an NBA team next.
