The Houston Rockets Are Now For Sale

The NBA franchise is now for sale.

Do you have a billion dollars sitting around? Want to buy an NBA team?

Now you can.

The Houston Rockets are for sale, the franchise surprisingly announced this afternoon.

A couple of NBA franchises have sold in recent seasons. The Clippers went for $2 billion, the Hawks went for $850 million and the Bucks went for $550 million.

Houston was estimated to be worth $1.5 billion in 2016.

Houston is in a very solid place as a franchise, with its management team locked up and its star player, James Harden, is signed to a long-term deal. The Rockets traded for Chris Paul this offseason and seem primed to make a run at the Western Conference Finals in 2017-18.

NBA guru Bill Simmons estimates the team could go for up to $3 billion.

It's going to be a very fun sale to watch.
