 Yes, Alex Rodriguez is a co-minority owner of the Minnesota Timberwolves

Rodriguez is a co-minority owner of the Timberwolves. The former New York Yankee and entrepreneur Marc Lore purchased ownership of the Timberwolves and the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx in 2021 for $1.5 billion. The sale was approved by the NBA.

The deal is structured where Rodriguez and Lore purchased 20-percent ownership in 2021 as the first increment of the sale. The duo would then have the opportunity to purchase an additional 20-percent share in 2022 and 40-percent share in 2023, which would make them majority owners of both teams.
