According to NetsDaily sources, the company had been seeking seven-figure financial compensation for nets.com from the Nets, which the Nets declined. It is not clear how much the site was eventually sold for, but since the asking price was in the seven figures, it’s a safe bet that the final price wasn’t cheap.
I reached out to one of the people rich enough and close enough to the situation to fit the bill — Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban — to see if he would discuss the domain. Rather than confirm or deny any involvement with the site, Cuban declined comment.
If Cuban did in fact buy the site, there’s a good chance the Nets may never see it again.
