Default Magic Johnson group may be buying the LA Sparks

Magic Johnson is part of a group buying the Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday night because no announcement had been made.

Johnson teamed with a group of investors to buy baseball’s Los Angeles Dodgers in 2012 for a record $2.15 billion. It will be the same group owning the Sparks, minus Peter Guber, who owns a stake in the NBA’s Golden State Warriors.

Crazy. I wonder if he can somehow drum up more interest in the team?

Props to Magic Johnson and the Dodgers ownership group on this purchase. The Sparks are a great team and one of the staples of the WNBA. The future of the WNBA ddepends on owners like Magic and Glen Taylor, just to name a few, who actually believe in the WNBA and willing to commit to the league. Props, Magic

Not sure if it is a smart trade since under Adam Silver, NBA might change the policy about backing WNBA. But if it will be the same, good for him.
