Mark Cuban Speaks On Interest In Owning Dodgers

Several months ago, according to the Los Angeles Times, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said he had expressed interest in buying the Los Angeles Dodgers:

Mark Cuban, the owner of the NBA champion Dallas Mavericks, said he offered to buy the Dodgers several months ago but declined to enter negotiations when owner Frank McCourt said the price would be in the range of $1 billion to $1.2 billion.

“At that price, I wasn’t interested,” Cuban said Tuesday.

According to this tweet from Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, Cuban spoke of possible interest in the Dodgers now that they’re officially on the market:

Mark Cuban on his level of interest in the #Dodgers: “At more than $1 billion none; under $1 billion, interested.” #MLB

Since, according to the announcement of the sale Tuesday night, the Dodgers are going to be sold in a “court supervised process”, the price could be driven up — or down — by various factors including the number of bidders.

Cuban has been linked to interest in a number of baseball teams in recent years, including the Cubs and Pirates. It’s been rumored that other baseball owners would vote to deny him ownership of a MLB team, but it’s possible that they want to get rid of Frank McCourt so much that they might approve Cuban.
