The Houston Rockets may be owned by Dikembe Mutombo’s group if the former NBA star gets his way. Billionaire Dan Friedkin is rumored to want to place a bid on the franchise, but Mutombo has gone on the record for wanting to put together a group to buy the franchise.
“I’m putting together a group to buy the Houston Rockets, and we’re getting close, getting close in the next couple weeks, maybe I’ll have a chance. Lot of people, lot of people and good people with a lot of money.”
Houston acquiring Chris Paul to pair with James Harden and potentially adding Carmelo Anthony in the near future is only going to increase the value.
