Mark Cuban wants to buy the Chicago Cubs

 The Mavericks' owner Mark Cuban has taken his interest in the Chicago Cubs a step further.

Mark Cuban wants to buy the Chicago Cubs Mark Cuban, the Dallas Mavericks basketball team and Indiana University grad, has applied to Major League Baseball as a next step in his interest in buying the Chicago Cubs. The billionaire declined to comment the future proceedings, or if a possible sell of the Mavericks could take place, if he gets the Cubs.

 But Mark Cuban is just one of the six candidates rumored to have expressed an interest in buying the Chicago Cubs. The bidding, which includes a stake in Comcast SportsNet, could exceed $1 billion, according to some analysts.

 The success of Cuban in turning the Dallas Mavericks into a top NBA team, have always linked the billionaire with purchases of other pro teams in the country. Last year Cuban publicly announced that if the Cubs went on the market - he would be quite interested in purchasing the legendary franchise.
