Jason Levien Rumors
Sean Cunningham: Interesting. Levien met with Kings ownership earlier in off-season. Was around briefly under Geoff Petrie. twitter.com/ailene_voisin/…
Jon Krawczynski: The name Jason Levien has not come up in talks Kaplan has had with team officials. Doesn’t mean he’s not involved. But hasn’t come up. And finally, whether Kaplan or another bidder buys a minority stake of Wolves, it by no means guarantees he will become majority owner.
Kaplan is partnering with controversial ex-Memphis Grizzlies CEO Jason Levien and Indonesian billionaires Handy Soetedjo and Erick Thohir, league sources said. Kaplan, a Los Angeles-based private equity investor, would need to divest its ownership stakes in Memphis to complete a deal with Minnesota.
