Los Angeles, Sep 9 (IANS) Actor-singer Justin Timberlake is reportedly planning to buy a small stake in his native Tennessee’s basketball team Memphis Grizzlies.
According to CommercialAppeal.com, Timberlake is said to have agreed to become a shareholder in businessman Robert Pera’s syndicate to buy the National Basketball Association (NBA) team, reports dailystar.co.uk.
