In an interview with theÂ New York Times, Shaq revealed that he wants to take on a new role, NBA owner, but not just anywhere, in his hometown of Newark.Â
Youâ€™ve talked about owning a team someday. Do you still want to do that?
A.Yes. And Iâ€™m looking forward to bringing a team to Newark. I havenâ€™t spoken to Mayor Booker about it yet, but Iâ€™m working on it. I know Newark can support an N.B.A. team. And Iâ€™m going to be one of the guys thatâ€™s going to bring a team there.
So with theÂ NetsÂ moving to Brooklyn, there will be room in New Jersey. But of course, that means a team has to go there. So Shaq wants to buy a team, and then move it to New Jersey.
