'Diddy', Curry among prospective Carolina Panthers owners

'Diddy', Curry among prospective Carolina Panthers owners

Just before the regular season was set to end, Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson announced his decision to put the franchise up for sale amid allegations of awful workplace behavior on his part.

Stephen Curry, who grew up in Charlotte, is a Panthers fan looking to become part of the team's next ownership group.

The two-time National Basketball Association champion now looks set to dip his toe into another sport, after hinting he could join a consortium of minority owners to support Michael Rubin's bid to buy football team Carolina Panthers.

Neither Combs nor Curry have the money to hold majority ownership of a franchise, but they are people Rubin would be interested in having on board.

Citing Forbes, ESPN suggested Rubin is worth approximately $3bn and would have to fund at least 30% of the cost of buying the Panthers-which Forbes values at $2.3m-to become the majority owner.

This wouldn't be his first venture into the sports world, as he owns a stake of the Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey Devils and the Premier League's Crystal Palace.

However the cost could be driven down if there aren't enough bidders to drive it up.

Curry, who grew up in Charlotte, told reporters previous year that he'd be "willing to do what it takes" to become part owner his hometown team. Forbes has Diddy valued at $820 million and Curry brought in $47.3 million in 2017 alone.

"ATTN all @NFL owners, it's time for diversity!" "Spread the word. Retweet", to which Curry replied "I want in!"

Official bids are expected to begin in the next two weeks and the buyer will need to earn approval from three-quarters of the NFL's 32 owners, which sources told ESPN.com would happen at the earliest during Atlanta-based meetings in May.
