First, he brought sexyback and told us that a billion dollars would be pretty cool but it looks like that actor/singer Justin Timberlake might be the first member of NSYNC to co-own an NBA team. (I'm looking at you, Joey Fatone!)
Timberlake has been rumored to be part of Robert Pera's ownership group that is looking to buy the Memphis Grizzlies from current owner Michael Heisley.
These rumors first came into the forefront from a story by ESPN's Marc Stein:
Sources with knowledge of the arrangement said Thursday that Timberlake, one of the NBA's most prominent celebrity fans and a Memphis native, has committed to joining Pera's team of minority partners as the sale of the franchise from Michael Heisley to the 34-year-old technology magnate nears completion.
Sources told ESPN.com that Timberlake and Pera have quickly struck up a friendship, with one source adding that the singer/actor is making "a meaningful investment into the team" and "plans to be active" with the Grizzlies. The league office, sources said, has been made aware of Timberlake's proposed involvement and is already well acquainted with him after inviting the self-proclaimed basketball junkie to participate in various celebrity games at All-Star Weekend.
If Justin does join the group, he'll be the second musician to be co-owner of a current NBA team with the first being the Brooklyn Nets and rapper Jay-Z.
