Justin Timberlake To Buy Grizzlies

Justin Timberlake is rumored to be shopping for an NBA team.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: I can think of worse owners than JT, actually the first one that comes to mind is MJ.

Current Memphis Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley is rumored to be in talks with the Robert Pera Ownership Group. This is a group of investors looking to purchase the Grizzlies from Heisley. Sources confirm Justin Timberlake is one of the major financial backers of Robert Pera Ownership Group.

This wouldn’t be the first singer to wade into the NBA. Who can forget Jay-Z’s move into partially owning the Brooklyn Nets? The marriage of Tmberlake with the Grizzlies makes sense to some degree because JT grew up in Memphis, so it is a coming home of sorts. A lot of details still need to be ironed out and no potential terms have been confirmed, but ‘m sure Grizzlie fans are excited to see a whole lot more of JT and his fiance Jessica Biel courtside.
