Cuban 'interested, but not on a mission'

DALLAS -- Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is interested in buying a controlling share of the Los Angeles Dodgers if "the right deal" falls in place.

The Dodgers aren't for sale, but that possibility looms as owner Frank McCourt's divorce with his estranged wife, Jamie, plays out.

Cuban previously bid unsuccessfully to buy the Chicago Cubs. His interest in buying the Dodgers isn't nearly as strong.

"For the right deal, I'm always interested, but I'm not on a mission," Cuban said Tuesday. "I'll make an inquiry like I have in the other deals, then we'll see what happens. But, again, it's got to be the right deal. It's not like the Cubs situation."

Cuban's definition of "the right deal," as e-mailed to the Los Angeles Times: "I'm not a fan of debt-driven acquisitions. If a unique situation came up where I could contribute capital to buy out a majority shareholder and gain control, with existing shareholders or note holders staying in place, I would consider it."

Major League Baseball must approve the sale of any team.
