WASHINGTON - Can one man own most of the major sports teams in Washington D.C.?
During a recent event at Capital One Arena, FOX 5 asked Capitals and Wizards owner Ted Leonsis if he had any plans to buy the Nationals.
"We're here to talk about the Caps and Wizards," he said. "I have no comment on other teams right now."
The Nationals are currently owned by real estate manager Ted Lerner and his son. There were reports in April about the two possibly selling the team.
In a statement sent to The Washington Post, Mark Lerner told the paper, "this is an exploratory process, so there is no set timetable or expectation of a specific outcome. The organization is as committed as ever to their employees, fans, sponsors, and partners and to putting a competitive product on the field."
