    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charlotte native and NBA All-Star Steph Curry along with Diddy are part of a group that e-commerce billionaire Michael Rubin is putting together to make an offer to buy the Carolina Panthers, ESPN reported.

    Rubin's name was mentioned on Sunday as a serious bidder to purchase the team that Jerry Richardson put up for sale during an NFL investigation into allegations of workplace misconduct.

    Rubin owns sports apparel retailer Fanatics and is a minority owner in the Philadelphia 76ers, the New Jersey Devils and the English soccer team Crystal Palace.


    Hedge fund billionaire David Tepper and Charleston businessman Ben Navarro have also expressed interested in buying the team.


    Charlotte businessman Felix Sabates is leading a local group looking to partner with another bidder.

    Official bids are expected over the next couple of weeks. The eventual buyer will have to be approved by three-quarters of NFL owners.

    The earliest that a decision is expected to happen is at the owners’ meetings in May in Atlanta.
