The sports business publication Sportico is reporting that Earvin “Magic” Johnson has joined a group being led by Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Josh Harris that is planning to make a bid on the Denver Broncos.

From MLive:

It is unclear how much capital Johnson is contributing to the bid group, according to Sportico, but with an estimated value of $3.8 billion, the Broncos sale is expected to set a record for the highest price ever paid for a sports franchise.

Detroit native and media mogul Byron Allen is also reportedly trying to purchase the Broncos with the help of an investor group from Wall Street, Hollywood, sports and business.
