Pagbenta sa Utah inaprubahan ng NBA
Inaprubahan na ng NBA Board of Governors ang pagbenta ng koponang Utah Jazz kay software developer Ryan Smith.
Nasa kamay na ngayon ni Qualtics co-founder at chief executive Smith ang nasabing koponan na tinutuluyan rin mismo ni Fil-Am cager at ex-Gilas member Jordan Clarkson.
“Ryan Smith is a forward-thinking, community-minded entrepreneur and business leader who will be a fantastic addition to our league,” saad ni NBA commissioner Adam Silver.
“As a life-long fan of the Utah Jazz and more recently as one of their key marketing partners, Ryan has demonstrated his deep commitment to the Jazz and the Utah community and there’s no doubt he will bring that same level of dedication to the operation of the team.”
Nabili ni Smith ang Jazz sa halagang $1.66 bilyon o katumbas ng halos P80 bilyon.
Sa record ng Forbes, ang Utah Jazz ay nasa ika-21 ng NBA Team valuations list. (Aivan Episcope)
