Move over Jay-Z, you may soon have some company as a music superstar slash part-owner of an NBA franchise. ESPN's Marc Stein is reporting that Justin Timberlake (pictured above stretching while wearing a Lakers shirt) is in talks with prospective new owner Robert Pera, CEO of Ubiquiti Networks, about contributing "a meaningful investment to the team" and that JT "plans to be active" with the Grizzlies. Timberlake, a Memphis native, would certainly boost the interest surrounding Rudy Gay, Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, and the talented bunch of Grizzlies, who will undoubtedly be more recognized by teenage girls as well. The sale to Pera is expected to go through, so it looks like we'll be seeing more Justin Timberlake in the NBA.
