Magic Johnson enters tender to buy NFL’s Washington Commanders

NBA legend Magic Johnson has entered a bid to acquire NFL’s Washington Commanders from struggling owner Daniel Snyder.

A representative for Magic Johnson Enterprises confirmed to CNN that the former NBA star has joined a bidding group for the Commanders led by billionaire Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils co-owner Josh Harris.

Representatives for Harris, co-founder of Apollo Global Management, declined to comment.

News of Johnson’s involvement was first reported by Sportico.

Snyder – who has been accused of promoting a “toxic workplace” in the NFL franchise – said last year that he was considering selling the team. At the time, Snyder and his wife, Tanya, announced that they had hired Bank of America Securities “to review potential transactions.”

In February, the Washington Post reported that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos had hired an investment firm to study the possibility of a bid for the Command team.
