Golden State Warriors superstar forward Kevin Durant suggested Friday he’s interested in helping add more diversity to NBA ownership after his playing career.

Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated provided Durant’s response when he was asked whether he’d want to become a general manager in the future.

“No, I want to own the team,” he said. “But I know you’re not used to seeing people that look like me (doing it).”

Assuming Durant was referencing his skin color, it wouldn’t be an unprecedented move. NBA legend Michael Jordan is the Charlotte Hornets’ principal owner and chairman.
