Floyd Mayweather interested in buying NBA team

After meeting with Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson, Floyd Mayweather apparently has aspirations to buy an NBA team.

Floyd Mayweather is in the midst of negotiating a mega-fight with Conor McGregor that could bring another $100million dollars to his name, more than enough money to make any of his wildest dreams come true - including, perhaps, buying an NBA team. 

Mayweather met with Los Angeles Lakers great and current president of basketball operations Magic Johnson on Thursday in LA and the two apparently talked about NBA ownership.

"It's about time for me to buy an NBA team, if you're ready to sell your NBA team, please get in touch with me," Mayweather wrote on Twitter.

According to Forbes, Mayweather is worth $340million, which would make him one of the poorer NBA owners since 20 of the teams are owned by billionaires.

If Mayweather is serious about making a bid for an NBA team, he will likely have to team up with another financial partner, as Derek Jeter is doing in working with Jeb Bush and others in a bid to buy the MLB's Miami Marlins.
