The Smiths just made a major move in the sports world. Will became the 4th major recording artist, along with his wife Jada, to own part of an NBA team.
The dad of 3 is part of an investment group, headed by multi-billionaire Joshua Harris, who made the major purchase and was unanimously approved by the NBA Board of Governors.
“My partners and I are thrilled to have become owners of the Sixers,” Joshua Harris said in a statement. ”It is an honor to become part of this storied franchise. We have a lot of work to do, but we have a rich history, a strong foundation and a bright future.”
The Smiths join the likes of Usher (Cleveland Cavs), Nelly (Charlotte Bobcats), and Jay-Z (New Jersey Nets).

As a team owner, minority or otherwise, Jay-Z’s presence violated league rules that prohibit contact with players that still have remaining intercollegiate basketball eligibility.
