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.
Re: Magic Johnson group may be buying the LA Sparks
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
