An unnamed Middle East investor has approached NBA commissioner last month to buy one of four NBA franchises - Financial Times is reporting.

(It is estimated that LA Lakers and the New York Knicks are worth more than $1 billion, and the NBA is expected to generate $5.5 billion in revenues this season.)
