Ownership of a sports franchise can be a star-studded affair these days. But there are a few names that transcend the likes of the Williams sisters involving themselves in the Miami Dolphins and Drake endorsing the Toronto Raptors.

One name that does so with ease is former U.S. President Barack Obama.

A noted Chicago sports fan, Obama was recently mentioned by ESPN’s Brian Windhorst as a current target that many NBA ownership groups want to get involved in their circle.

“There are multiple people that are competing that want Barack Obama to be part of an ownership group,” said Windhorst on ESPN’s “Jalen & Jacoby” podcast.

“If he wants to be part of an ownership group, he could be by this afternoon,” continued Windhorst.

While Obama isn’t likely to be in charge of any managerial decisions, he would be a distinguished name to flaunt in front of both a team’s fan base and potential free agents.

Windhorst didn’t provide a timeline for such a development, instead saying that Obama would be careful about any situation he involves himself in, assuming he agreed to go down this road.
