Magic Johnson has finally declared his intentions
“Our bid is in,” Johnson said on Today, via Ben Standig of TheAthletic.com.
“We hope that we win. We don’t know what’s going to happen … We’ll see what happens with Mr. Snyder making that decision. But we’re excited about it.”
Johnson is part of the group led by Josh Harris.
The Harris group reportedly has made a $6 billion bid. Canadian billionaire Steve Apostolopoulos also has reportedly submitted a $6 billion bid. There has been no reporting on how the tie will be broken.
The Harris bid reportedly has more sound financial footing. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos continues to lurk in the weeds.
