But what about someone who can actually afford a majority stake?
Houston billionaire Dan Friedkin, owner and CEO of Gulf States Toyota and the president and CEO of the Friedkin Group, acknowledged in a statement released to FOX 26 Sports that he is interested in buying the Houston Rockets franchise.
“I’ve expressed interest in exploring the purchase of the Houston Rockets,” Friedkin said in a statement released by his company.
More likely, if Friedkin is serious about purchasing the team, he’ll do so as part of a group. Whether he’d spend enough to be the controlling owner is an open question.
