Floyd Mayweather Jr. has his sights set on NBA ownership.

The boxing legend revealed Monday that he's been "working behind the scenes" on owning an NBA team, according to Sam Gordon of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

"I've been talking to certain individuals for the last six months," Mayweather said. "That's something I've been working on behind the scenes, but I've never came out and publicly talked about that with the media.

"Me and my team have been working behind the scenes with the NBA. I can't say exactly where, but I'm working on getting a team."

Mayweather resides in Las Vegas, which has been rumored as a potential city for NBA expansion. Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James has also expressed interest in owning an NBA team in Sin City.

Commissioner Adam Silver told reporters recently that the NBA isn't currently discussing expansion but said it's "invariable at some point the league will expand."
