After 24 years of ownership, former bond trade Les Alexander is looking to sell the NBA’s Houston Rockets.  One potential suitor includes pop superstar and Houston native, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter.

The singer is reportedly interested in an ownership stake, although her publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, has not responded to any questions on the matter.  The Knowles-Carter family is already pretty familiar with the NBA life.  Previously, Jay-Z held a less than 1% stake in the Brooklyn Nets, but sold his share after starting Roc Nation, an athlete representation firm.

Beyoncé would join a pretty elite list of celebrities owning stakes in professional teams should she choose to invest.  Justin Timberlake, a native of Memphis, Tennessee, owns a piece of basketball’s Grizzlies, tennis players Venus and Serena Williams, and Jennifer Lopez, are investors in the NFL’s Miami Dolphins, and actor Will Ferrell has a stake in Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Football Club.

The Rockets have also declined to comment on the matter.
