Yesterday news came out about two new potential buyers for the Houston Rockets. The first was Hakeem Olajuwon, but who is the second?
Beyonce is one of the most famous people ever to come out of Houston. Now, because of her love for her hometown teams, she is interested in owning part of one.
While Beyonce is super famous and wealthy, she would definitely want/need to partner with a group to buy the Rockets. The Houston Chronicle compared her interest in the purchasing part of the team as one like her husband Jay-Z had with the Brooklyn Nets. They also said that Beyonce’s net worth is around $350 million.
Some of the other celebrities named by the Chronicle who own part of a team include Justin Timberlake, the Williams sisters, and Jennifer Lopez.
Will Beyonce be the one to own part of the Rockets? She adds to the list of Houstonians that are interested in keeping the team in their city. In case you want to see it, here is the full post that the Houston Chronicle wrote about the situation:

Who Else is Interested?
Beyonce joins the list of people interesting in owner some or all of the Houston Rockets. One of the first people reported to be interested was Landry’s and Golden Nugget CEO, Tilman Fertitta. Other interesting candidates include Mattress Mack, Dikembe Mutombo and, most recently, Hakeem Olajuwon.
It is unknown who will buy the Rockets or whether or not they will have a group. However, the team will be in good hands and will stay in H-Town. Adding someone like Beyonce to the mix would bring some serious star power into negotiations with players if she were to own some of the team.
Will Beyonce follow through with her interest or will one of the other people swoop in and purchase the franchise? We will have to wait and see.
