Last week it was reported that Jay-Z will be selling his ownership share in the Nets — an amount less than one percent of the franchise — in order to become a certified NBA agent.
Ohanian, who sold the popular social media site Reddit.com in 2006, is a Brooklyn native and Nets season-ticket holder, according to NetsDaily.com. Ohanian tweeted last week to express his interest in buying Jay-Z’s shares:

Ohanian was also on Bloomberg TV’s “Money Moves” Tuesday where he again expressed his interest in buying Jay-Z’s share of the Nets.
“Absolutely,” answered Ohanian when asked if he would have interest in buying Jay-Z’s share. “In fact, I have tried to make as many public and private overtures as I can to let HOVA know that I would absolutely be honored to buy those shares.”
Nets Daily also says Jay-Z will decide who purchases his share of the team. Jay-Z reportedly paid $1 million for his stake in the team.
