Cuban wouldn't sell Mavs at any price: 'What do I need $3 billion for?'
Mark Cuban didn't become a multi-billionaire without a shrewd sense of business logic guiding him along the way, but the Dallas Mavericks' owner says no amount of money could convince him to sell his beloved NBA team.
"I’m turning down anything," Cuban told HBO's Bill Simmons on Wednesday's episode of "Any Given Wednesday," after Simmons mentioned that the Mavs were valued at $1.4 billion.
The response of the night, however, came after Cuban told Simmons that he would even turn down a $3-billion offer. "What do I need $3 billion for?" Cuban asked.
For what it's worth, the biggest sale in league history saw Steve Ballmer purchase the Los Angeles Clippers for $2 billion in 2014, while according to Forbes, the New York Knicks are the only NBA team worth $3 billion.
