Mashburn Interested in Owning Hornets
However, (Jamal) Mashburn still misses the game and is considering buying a team. The league-managed New Orleans Hornets appear to be an ideal opportunity for Mashburn, who has talked with league commissioner David Stern several times while putting together a group to purchase the franchise.
“I can be an asset to a team as an owner, not only for my ability to scout talent, but also understand the business side of things. The first all-star of the Hornets comes back to buy the team, it’s going to be a great story,” Mashburn said.
