Former All-Star Chris Webber is making a play to re-enter the NBA, as a majority ownership in the team.
Webber leads the Webber Group, which has informed the league of its desire to purchase majority interest in the Atlanta Hawks. The franchise is for sale in the wake of a controversy involving racially charged comments made by owner Bruce Levenson and general manager Danny Ferry.
The group announced its intentions Thursday on Twitter.
Webber, 41, has had a home in Atlanta for the past decade and has been working to connect with community officials and organizations to make a case for reselling the organization to an increasingly dubious public.
Webber was a five-time All-NBA player in his 15-year career, including stops in Golden State, Washington, Sacramento, Philadelphia and Detroit. He was the No. 1 overall draft pick in 1993 out of the University of Michigan. He's working as a television analyst for TNT and NBA TV, based out of Atlanta now.
