In a strategic move, entrepreneur Mark Cuban has sold a controlling interest in the Dallas Mavericks to the Adelson and Dumont families, approved by the NBA on Wednesday. 

The $3.5 billion deal positions Patrick Dumont as the Mavericks' governor, with Cuban retaining a 27% stake and control over basketball operations. Cuban cites the evolving NBA landscape and a future where real estate holds significant advantages in ownership. 

Miriam Adelson, the controlling shareholder of Las Vegas Sands Corp., expressed commitment to building on the team's success in Dallas and beyond. The sale comes as media rights deals face uncertainty, with Diamond Sports, the owner of the Mavericks' regional sports network, undergoing bankruptcy proceedings.

Cuban sees the deal improving the team's financial position and reducing dependency on media rights revenue. While gambling remains illegal in Texas, where the Mavericks are based, Miriam Adelson has actively campaigned for its legalization. 

Cuban supports this effort, emphasizing the broader impact of destination resorts and casinos on the state. Despite the change in ownership, Cuban reassures Mavericks fans that the team will stay in Dallas.

His continued involvement includes making key decisions on coaching and player signings. With the Adelson and Dumont families specializing in real estate, Cuban sees the partnership as complementary, leveraging their strengths for mutual success.

As Cuban reflects on the sale, he emphasizes the importance of a partnership that combines expertise. The deal signifies a new chapter for the Mavericks, blending Cuban's basketball passion with the real estate acumen of the Adelson and Dumont families. (Source: NBA)
