Stern Promises "Full and Intrusive" Background Check on Prokhorov

New, comments

Noting he would "feel less than whole" if he denied foreign investors while accepting foreign players, David Stern still promised a "full and intrusive" background check of Mikhail Prokhorov. Speaking in London, where the Jazz play the Bulls, Stern added a consultant will work with the NBA's security office. The commissioner has welcomed the idea of Prokhorov and said he expects other overseas investors to follow.
