The new owners of the Dodgers could add the Kings, Lakers, Galaxy and an NFL team to their stable.
Mark Walter, chairman of the Dodgers and chief executive of Guggenheim Partners, said Tuesday that his company is exploring whether to bid on AEG.
In May, Guggenheim bought the Dodgers for $2.15 billion, a world record price for a sports franchise. Officials at AEG — the Anschutz Co. entity that includes sports teams, Staples Center and the Home Depot Center — have indicated they expect the company to sell for $5 billion to $7 billion.
Walter said the possible “synergy” in marketing and sponsorship among the Los Angeles teams could make AEG an attractive investment. However, because prospective bidders have yet to receive confidential financial information from AEG, Walter said he could not say for sure that a bid would make sense for Guggenheim.
