The Angels are one of two MLB teams currently for sale. Owner Arte Moreno announced in August that he was exploring a possible sale.
Sportico reported last September that Patrick Soon-Shiong, owner of the Los Angeles Times, was considering a bid. Another potential attendee confirmed his interest in the franchise this afternoon.
Joe Lacob, owner of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors, has told Athletic’s Tim Kawakami that he is considering a potential bid.We are reported to be looking at it and it is truth‘, Lacob said in an appearance on Kawakami’s podcast. “I still don’t know what we are going to do. I grew up[in Anaheim]. It’s a bit of a charm to me.“Lacob went on to take note of it.”it wouldn’t be the easiest thing in the world“Because it’s called the Angels chase, not near the San Francisco area where the Warriors play.”Maybe viable”

He suggested he would also be interested in running for either the Giants or the A’s if the Bay Area franchise went up for sale, but clearly that would be moot if the Angels’ bid was successful.

Lacob’s comments are far from a commitment to any serious execution of the Anaheim franchise, but it’s worth noting that we’ve heard it’s at least in some stages of consideration. . Commissioner Rob Manfred said at the winter meeting last month that the team hopes to complete it by day one.
