Vivek Ranadive Rumors
Sacramento Kings co-owner Vivek Ranadive is among the parties interested in buying Inter from Suning. This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the US-based business executive and software engineer is considering a bid for the Nerazzurri, although he would consider Suning’s €1.2 billion valuation to be excessive.
A group led by Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive is on the verge of purchasing the city’s minor league baseball team for approximately $90 million, according to people familiar with the terms. It would be the highest price ever paid for a minor league team.
The deal, which includes the River Cats’ Sutter Health Park, would expand Ranadive’s real estate development in downtown Sacramento and the surrounding area. The ballpark was built and opened in 2000 at a cost of $46.5 million at the time.
Jason Anderson: Yup that’s 50 Cent sitting over there with Kings owner Vivek Ranadive and Vlade Divac.
Mike Brown: “I didn’t really deal with Vivek a ton (during the coaching search) except for that one meeting. It was down at his house (in Atherton), which was good for me with my (Warriors) schedule because it was close to where I was. Monte and Wes were there too. The process was probably a couple weeks overall from the beginning to the end. “But it really started with Monte and Wes, and I’ll even back it up a step further. You know, Wes and I worked together in Cleveland. So I knew what Wes was about and he obviously explained to me what Monte was about and I got to know Monte over the process a little bit better. And so starting with those two guys right there, I said, ‘Hey, man, you know, I can work with these guys.’
