Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Interested in Joining Milwaukee Bucks' Ownership Group

USA TODAY Sports

The Packers' QB is a pretty big basketball fan and, according to a report, he has expressed interest to new Bucks owners Marc Lasry and Wes Edens about joining the team's ownership group.

Not too long ago, Aaron Rodgers said that he would be interested in partially owning an NBA team. He responded "yes" when asked on ESPN Radio about getting involved with the Milwaukee Bucks, and today, well, reports are indicating he has taken steps to do just that.

According to a report from Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times, Rodgers has already discussed with the Bucks’ new owners in Marc Lasry and Wes Edens that very possibility:

The Packers quarterback adds to the list of athletes who have expressed interested in joining the ownership group. Former Bucks players Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Junior Bridgeman, along with other business leaders, have already shown some interest in partnering. All of them could possibly help the team as they look for funding of a new area in the city of Milwaukee.

Rodgers is a huge sports fan in general and he’s passionate about basketball in particular, as he attends several Bucks games each year and was spotted supporting the Wisconsin Badgers basketball team during their run to the Final Four. If the Bucks can bring him in as a potential partner, it would help the franchise gain some notoriety and give the owners some name recognition. As he is already the most popular sports figure in the entire state today, adding his name into the ownership pool of the Bucks would continue to add to his legacy in the state of Wisconsin.
