Michael Jordan reportedly part of group trying to buy the Miami Marlins

Michael Jordan may be on the verge of being a dual owner.

The GOAT and Bulls legend already owns the Charlotte Hornets and is reportedly part of the group — led by Derek Jeter — that is on the verge of buying the Miami Marlins from Jeffrey Loria.

Jordan won't be contributing much money, the NY Post writes, but is apparently among the 15 investors as the leading contender to buy Giancarlo Stanton and the Marlins.

The deal is reportedly coming in in the neighborhood of $1.2 billion, which is a little below the $1.3 billion asking price of Loria. 

Jordan has been the owner of the Charlotte basketball franchise since June 2006 and currently serves as the principal owner and chairman. The Hornets went 36-46 last season and have had only three winning seasons since Jordan became involved.

Report: Derrick Rose leaning toward Cavaliers over Lakers

Report: Derrick Rose leaning toward Cavaliers over Lakers

The latest Derrick Rose report says the 28-year-old guard will end up teaming up with LeBron James.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Rose is leaning toward signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers over the Los Angeles Lakers. Discussions have been for a one-year, $2.1 million deal.

The free agent guard is meeting with Cavs officials in Ohio on Monday, according to Woj.

Rose's decision to sign with the Cavs makes more sense than the Lakers, especially after last week's report that Kyrie Irving requested a trade out of Cleveland. A minimum deal for Rose would also be a steal for the Cavs, who are seeking some solid production at a low cost.

In 64 games last season with the New York Knicks, Rose averaged 18 points, his best since the 2011-12 season with the Bulls.
