Sean 'Diddy' Combs, Steph Curry Among Group Bidding for Panthers

TimesTalks Presents An Evening With Sean

"I would like to buy the Panthers", Diddy tweeted.

- Another contender is now in the ring for ownership of the Panthers.

Remember when, back in December, we told you that Sean "Diddy" Combs was interested in buying the Carolina Panthers, with Stephen Curry saying that he wanted in?

Rubin's name was mentioned on Sunday as a serious bidder to purchase the team that Jerry Richardson put up for sale during an National Football League investigation into allegations of workplace misconduct.

A few days after Combs initially expressed interest publicly on Twitter, Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson reported that Combs was already setting up meetings with investors in hopes of putting a potential ownership group together, including free agent National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Charlotte businessman Felix Sabates is leading a local group looking to partner with another bidder. When news of the expected sale emerged, Combs tweeted his desire to buy the team and Curry responded on Twitter that he also was interested. The rapper/entrepreneur further stated that among his first acts as owner would be to sign free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

"It's a pretty interesting opportunity", Curry said several weeks later.

Neither Combs nor Curry have the money to consider being a majority owner. The report also lists Charlotte native and National Basketball Association superstar Steph Curry and music mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs as potential minority stake holders.

Rubin, the owner of the sports apparel retailer Fanatics, on Monday was one of three known bidders with the financial strength to be a majority owner who notified the NFL with a formal letter of intent required by the league.

Curry and Combs would be high-profile members of what ESPN described as "a strong, diverse group" being assembled by Rubin, who has amassed an estimated fortune of $3 billion via various e-commerce enterprises. According to the Observer, others interested in buying the Panthers include Pittsburgh Steelers minority owner David Tepper and SC businessman Ben Navarro, and the winning bid could be selected as soon as the end of this month or in early April.
