LeBron James wants to see his dreams of owning an NBA franchise realized in Las Vegas.

Speaking on an upcoming episode of HBO's "The Shop," the Los Angeles Lakers star opened up about his desires for the next chapter of his career once his playing days conclude.

"Yeah, I wanna buy a team, for sure. ... I want a team in Vegas," James said.

The NBA currently has no concrete expansion plans in place. Commissioner Adam Silver recently denied a rumor that the 30-team league was considering Las Vegas and Seattle as candidates to host expansion franchises as soon as 2024.

James, who recently became the league's first active player with an estimated net worth of $1 billion, previously opened up about his goal of owning an NBA franchise last season.
