Could The NBA Be Open For Saudi Arabia’s Business? Maybe

Jun 12, 2023

With Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund working its way deeper into professional golf via its new pact with the PGA Tour, it’s fair to wonder what other sports the country will be interested in soon.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver won’t completely outrule the possibility of the Saudi PIF entering the league in some shape or form, given the NBA recently decided to allow sovereign wealth funds to buy minority stakes in franchises.

“People are a little too dismissive these days about the benefits that come from the commonality around sports,” Silver said during a recent appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show” while discussing the PGA Tour deal.
