Sixers owner Josh Harris has reached an agreement to purchase the NFL’s Washington Commanders, Sportico’s Scott Soshnick and Eben Novy-Williams report.
Harris, who is also the managing partner for the NHL’s New Jersey Devils, is acquiring the NFL team from Dan Snyder for approximately $6 billion, a record for a sports franchise. Harris’ group also includes NBA Hall of Famer and former Lakers executive Magic Johnson.
The previous record purchase price for a sports team was $4.6 billion, which Rob Walton paid for the NFL’s Denver Broncos last year.
Harris became the majority owner of the Sixers franchise in 2011.
