The potential sale of the Washington Commanders has been in the news a lot of late. Just this week alone, there’ve been several updates to the process. Many of those updates centered around Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his interest in purchasing the team. The NFL seems to be fascinated with the idea if Peter King is to be believed.

Now, another major luminary is reportedly interested in joining the fun. NBA star and Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant wants to join an ownership group interested in buying the Commanders. An article written by Nick Friedell forays into the possibility of Durant joining whichever group makes the purchase. Durant said he’d “love to do it” and went on to discuss the possibility in a glowing fashion.

“Jeff Bezos, Jay-Z, and KD… that’s quite the trio!” wrote 7 News ABC anchor Scott Abraham in a tweet Sunday morning, adding excitement for the potential possibilities that lie ahead.

“The Brooklyn Nets star forward follows the Commanders religiously and is waiting to see what happens with owner Dan Snyder’s potential sale of the team,” tweeted Fox 5 New York reporter Jennifer Williams.

The Commanders are notably Durant’s favorite team, as he is a lifelong fan.
