Oscar are you listening? Karl Malone is interested in buying into a future NBA franchise for Las Vegas.

And it isn’t just some wishful thinking.

"I’ve had very preliminary discussions about Vegas and would love to be a part of that project," the future Hall of Famer said when reached in Los Angeles. "I believe the city could support a team and I know guys would love to play there."

Malone sees the casinos as financial backers. My inside source says both the money and the interest are there. Karl doesn’t blow smoke, so consider this a developing story.
