Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James says he plans to own a potential NBA expansion team in Las Vegas.

Expansion in the coming seasons from 30 teams to 32 has been rumoured, with a return to Seattle and move to Vegas seemingly most likely.

“I want a team in Vegas”

And four-time MVP James, who is the first active NBA player to become a billionaire, hopes to have a role in any Vegas outfit.

I want to own a team,” he told The Shop in an episode set to air on Friday. “I want to buy a team, for sure.

“I would much rather own a team before I talk. I want a team in Vegas.”

The 37-year-old shared the clip with the caption: “Speaking it into existence!”

James would be following in the footsteps of fellow great Michael Jordan, who runs the Charlotte Hornets.
