In the wake of the Los Angeles Clippers selling for a league-record $2 billion, Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov has been open to overtures from potential buyers for the Brooklyn Nets, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

“Just listening so far,” a league official with direct knowledge told Yahoo Sports. “They haven’t indicated a desire or willingness to sell. …Nothing was initiated by [Prokhorov].”

Part of Prokhorov’s willingness to listen has come out of his company’s curiosity of how much his ownership share of the Nets and the Barclays Center could fetch on the market, league sources said.
