76ers owner Josh Harris, and his group in a pursuit to bid and purchase the NJ Devils,
Sixers majority owner Joshua Harris and his investment group are considering the purchase of another professional sports franchise.
On Wednesday, Fox 29’s Howard Eskin tweeted:
“#sixers owners hve more going than finding HC. Highly placed sources tell me Owner Josh Harris and his group bidding on #NJ Devils purchase”
Multiple sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed Eskin’s report, but they also indicated that Harris’s group has considered purchasing one of at least three different sports-related entities. The Devils are among those potential investments. Harris’s group, which includes former Sixers CEO Adam Aaron, is believed to be relatively small, but the acquisition team working on its behalf is at least 12 people deep.
According to Forbes, Harris is worth $2.1 billion. In 2011, he and the current Sixers ownership group bought the team for a reported $287 million. As of January 2013, Forbes valued the Sixers at $418 million.
