Sixers Owners in on MLS team

1

This piece makes it sound like a deal is all but done between Indonesian media mogul Eric Thohir and fellow Sixers minority owner Jason Levein to become partners with current sole owner and all-around badass Will Chang in ownership of D.C. United. "Sources say Thohir, an Indonesian media magnate who ranks as the first Asian owner in NBA history, and Levien, who worked as an NBA player agent before a stint in the Sacramento Kings' front office that preceded his involvement with the Sixers, will make the construction of a new soccer-specific stadium for DC United their top priority." I'm desperately trying to remain skeptical, but this is really freaking exciting.
