Carmelo Anthony may become a member of the Rockets by the time the 2017-18 NBA season tips off. And a potential new investor in the team would know Anthony’s game well, given how frequently she is courtside at Madison Square Garden.
According to the “people familiar with the matter,” Bloomberg reported Tuesday that Beyoncé Knowles is looking to invest in the Rockets, recently put up for sale by current owner Les Alexander.
A Houston native and Rockets fan, Beyoncé could become one of Anthony’s bosses if she buys a stake in the franchise, likely as part of a larger ownership group. At a time when valuations for professional sports teams are solidly in the 10-figure range, theRockets won’t come cheap.
Considered one of the NBA’s top teams — with James Harden and offseason addition Chris Paul — the Rockets have been valued at well more than $2 billion. Thats would be dope to see, Beyonce owning the Rockets and if Carmelo moves to Houston, than whoa!
