Owners Rumors

Nets officials have noted repeatedly over the last several months that Tsai, like Prokhorov, has bought into Marks long-term rebuild. In November, during a short back-and-forth between him and Bill Walton in Huangzhou, Tsai told the Hall of Famer that he expects his ownership to be “an interesting journey” and “a long-term project.” He also described Jeremy Lin, a Taiwanese-American, as his “favorite player.”
Cavaliers majority owner Dan Gilbert said in a Tweet his son survived eight hours of brain surgery. Nick Gilbert, 21, underwent the surgery this week to treat a brain tumor. His father said Nick made it through the surgery and 48 hours of rest, but still has “hurdles ahead.”

Kings owner and chairman Vivek Ranadive said in a written statement that more details on the bid will be announced next week and that the team will present its bid to the NBA on Feb. 23. “Golden 1 Center has been a great spark for the city and building on that momentum, we have assembled an unprecedented plan to host a global celebration of basketball at the All-Star Game in Sacramento,” Ranadive said in a written statement.
