Mark Cuban ‘Considering’ Presidential Run But Not ‘Ready to Commit’

The billionaire endorsed Hillary Clinton in the last election.

With every passing day, the lines between professional sports and politics continue to blur. That could reach somewhat of a fever pitch if Dallas Mavericks’ billionaire owner Mark Cuban decides to run for office.

According to Bleacher Report, Cuban seems to be leaning towards a presidential bid. On the ViewPoint podcast hosted by former Congressman Bakari Sellers, Cuban said he’s “considering” running for president, but he’s not “ready to commit.” (Listen to an extended version of the soundbite below.)

Cuban also recently appeared on CNBC’s Fast Money, noting that he was “actively considering” a presidential run. “Based off what’s happening in the White House, based off what’s happening in the country and the world, we need better leadership. And I think I could do a better job,” he said on the show. “But there’s a lot more to it than just thinking you can do a better job, and so I’m not ready to make the commitment.”

During the 2016 presidential campaigns, Cuban endorsed Hillary Clinton.
