Value: $3.40 billion

Joseph Tsai bought 49.9% of the Nets from Mikhail Prokhorov in April 2018 and then the entire team in September 2019. Tsai also acquired the operating company for the Barclays Center as a part of the deal. The total enterprise value for the team and arena business was $3.3 billion.

3) Los Angeles Lakers

Value: $5.14 billion

Value: $5.42 billion
