Share

<p>Owner of the Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban has agreed to sell the families that control the Las Vegas Sands casino resort business the bulk of his shares in the NBA team.</p>
<p>Cuban said he would earn $3.5 billion in the purchase, according to an NBC Dallas-Fort Worth story on Wednesday. The agreement needs to be authorized by the owners of NBA teams in order to go through.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-293472″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-bobby-deol-ranbir-kapoors-stepbrother-is-not-silent-in-animal-sandeep-reddy-vanga-.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com bobby deol ranbir kapoors stepbrother is not silent in animal sandeep reddy vanga” width=”1341″ height=”889″ title=”Casino Magnate Family Initiates 3.5 Billion USD Purchase Agreement for Dallas Mavericks NBA Team 3″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-bobby-deol-ranbir-kapoors-stepbrother-is-not-silent-in-animal-sandeep-reddy-vanga-.jpg 276w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/theindiaprint.com-bobby-deol-ranbir-kapoors-stepbrother-is-not-silent-in-animal-sandeep-reddy-vanga–150×99.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1341px) 100vw, 1341px” /></p>
<p>The families of Miriam Adelson and her son-in-law Patrick Dumont, president of Sands Corporation, released a statement on Wednesday expressing their intention to finalize the transaction before year’s end.</p>
<p>The announcement said, “To obtain majority ownership and the right to serve as governor of the Dallas Mavericks, the Adelson and Dumont families have entered into binding purchase agreements.”</p>
<p>“The families hope to close the deal by year’s end, provided the NBA Board of Governors gives its approval and the customary closing conditions are met.”</p>
<p>The Mavericks, ranked eighth out of 30 NBA teams, were valued at $4.5 billion by Forbes magazine last month. Cuban is estimated to be worth $6.2 billion by Forbes.</p>
<p>For $285 million in January 2000, Cuban—a fervent basketball enthusiast who often sits courtside at Mavericks games—purchased the team’s controlling stake.</p>
<p>According to reports, the 65-year-old American would continue to oversee the team’s operations but would not act as the NBA team’s governor.</p>
<p>The Mavericks returned to the NBA after a ten-year absence, fell to Miami in the NBA Finals in 2006, and won their first NBA championship in 2011 after defeating Miami.</p>
<p>Before losing to Golden State in the Western Conference final last year, they had not triumphed in a postseason series.</p>
<p>According to the family statement, “The Dallas Mavericks are one of the most successful and well-known sports franchises in the world.”</p>
<p>The club has garnered support from a devoted and enthusiastic fan base and a leadership group headed by Mark Cuban. It has also earned an NBA title and a lengthy history of drawing superstars from across the world.</p>
<p>It is a privilege for the Adelson and Dumont families to be able to look after this outstanding business.</p>
<p>We look forward to working with Mark Cuban to further the team’s success and legacy in Dallas and beyond via our dedication and new investment in the group.</p>
<p>DENTIC THIRD IN THE SCORE</p>
<p>The widow of casino tycoon Sheldon Adelson, Adelson, is a key stakeholder in the Sands organization, which has big casinos in Macau and Singapore.</p>
<p>If Texas decides to legalize gambling, Cuban has said that he wants to see a new Mavericks arena constructed as part of a casino.</p>
<p>With a record of 11-6, the Mavericks are tied for third place in the NBA Western Conference.</p>
<p>Luka Doncic, a great guard from Slovenia, is now third in the NBA in scoring with 31.1 points per game. His 64 3-pointers this season put him six ahead of Dallas teammate Tim Hardaway Jr. and second behind Stephen Curry of Golden State.</p>
<p>According to the family statement, “the objective is to win and to have a team that proudly represents the greater DFW area and serves as a strong and valuable member of the local community.”</p>
<p>“We think the future is bright for the Dallas Mavericks with this partnership and our commitment to the team, the community, and the fans.”</p>
