Kevin Garnett Purchased Small Stake in Soccer Club Roma

Kevin Garnett becomes the latest NBA player to own a piece of a foreign soccer club (LeBron James purchased a minor piece of Liverpool earlier this year.) Per the AP: “Boston Celtics All-Star forward Kevin Garnett is about to become a small shareholder in the American-owned Roma football club. Roma has confirmed to The Associated Press that Garnett accepted an offer from James Pallotta, one of the four Boston executives that closed a deal in August to become the first foreign majority owners of a Serie A club. Pallotta is also a minority owner of the Celtics. Details of the deal are still being worked out, but Garnett could also be used in the promotion of the Roma brand.”
