Milawkuee Bucks owner Wes Edens daughter, Mallory Edens, says she wants to buy the New York Knicks. Edens said her dad can keep the Bucks, but she wants to see more females doing things in the world of sports.
According to the New York Post, “I think women are hugely underrepresented in sports. There are not female GMs [general managers], like one team president who is a woman in the NBA. There’s no female head coaches, you know hopefully [San Antonio Spurs assistant coach] Becky Hammon gets a head coaching job somewhere, but there’s never been a female commissioner in any of the four major American sports leagues.”
The Knicks are worth $3.3 billion, and owner James Dolan has never expressed that he is ready to sell the team, even after the team has struggled since he became the owner 18 years ago. Edens told TMZ Sports that she wanted to be a trailblazer for women in the NBA and sports.
