Everyone has the same hunch about Mark Cuban following his decision to sell the Dallas Mavericks.
Cuban made headlines this week when he revealed he will be leaving ‘Shark Tank’ after a 15-year run. He’s followed that up with plans to sell a majority stake in said team, with casino magnate Miriam Adelson and the Adelson family reportedly set to make a $3.5 billion purchase.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Cuban is set to sell a large percentage of the team to Adelson, who is the widow of Sheldon Adelson, but will maintain operational control in what would be a unique sale as Adelson would own more than 50 percent.
