Ratner May Sell Nets - Team Investor, Russian Oligarch Interested

Bruce Ratner is trying to sell the Nets, reports Sports Illustrated. In explaining the trade of Vince Carter, Ian Thomsen writes four potential owners have emerged, including Vincent Viola, the team's second biggest investor, and Mikhail Prokhorov, a Russian oligarch who until recently was an owner of CSKA Moscow, one of Europe's top teams. Two other unnamed groups are in the mix, writes Thomsen.
