Oprah Winfrey is the latest individual to put her name forward to become LA Clippers owner in the wake of Donald Sterling's lifetime ban.
According to ESPN, a source close to the business tycoon revealed that Winfrey is weighing up making a bid with the help of fellow billionaires David Geffen and Larry Ellison.
Winfrey joins an increasingly long list of big names rumored to be interested in purchasing the California franchise, with the likes of P Diddy, Dr. Dre, Frankie Muniz and Floyd Mayweather Jr also linked.
But the three-pronged bid reported by ESPN is perhaps the most viable with the trio involved having a reported accumulated wealth of well over $15 billion.
Geffen made his wealth dealing in music and film while Ellison is the CEO of Oracle - a company specializing in business software and technology.
The source cited by ESPN also claimed that any bid involving Magic Johnson was unlikely.
As yet Sterling is not in a position where he has to sell, but Silver, speaking at the press conference yesterday, was confident that NBA owners would do the right thing and vote to force a sale.
