Golden Nugget owner inks deal to buy the Houston Rockets
    2017-September-8  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE Billion Dollar Buyer and owner of Biloxi’s Golden Nugget Casino will soon be adding a professional basketball team to his vast list of businesses.

According to the National Basketball Association, Tilman J. Fertitta has inked a multi-billion dollar deal to buy the Houston Rockets.

U.S. media reported Tuesday that Fertitta agreed to purchase the team from its current owner Leslie Alexander for US$2.2 billion, a record sale price for an NBA franchise.

“I am truly honored to have been chosen as the next owner of the Houston Rockets,” said Fertitta in a statement from the NBA.

“This is a life-long dream come true. Leslie Alexander has been one of the best owners in all of sports, and I thank him immensely for this opportunity. He has the heart of a champion. Lastly, out of respect for the NBA’s approval process, I can say no more other than I am overwhelmed with emotions.”

Many people still remember Fertitta as the investor who offered Gulfport’s Pop Brothers a US$65,000 deal on his reality show, Billion Dollar Buyer.

A Texas native, Fertitta’s business portfolio includes Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Morton’s The Steakhouse, the Landry’s restaurant chain, and numerous others.(SD-Agencies)
