Worldwide music superstar Beyonce is exploring the possibility of buying ownership in the Houston Rockets NBA franchise, according to the New York Daily News.

Should she buy a piece of the team, Beyonce would join a sizable list of celebrities who have owned a stake in professional sports franchises.

Alexander purchased the Houston Rockets for $85 million in 1993.

The Rockets won't come cheap, as Bloomberg writer Scott Soshnick pointed out that the team's popularity in China could push the price over the record $2 billion that former Microsoft CEO spent on the Los Angeles Clippers in 2014.

The Houston Rockets may soon have a very famous new owner.

Beyoncé, of course, would have the flawless person to talk to about making such an investment, with husband JAY-Z having formerly owned a minority stake in the Nets. Beyonce is a native of Houston, Texas.

A longtime sports fan, Beyonce, seen here with her husband Jay-Z at a Champions League soccer game in 2014, might soon own a piece of her hometown National Basketball Association team. He sold his share after starting Roc Nation, which represents athletes. The storied franchise is headlined by superstars James Harden and Chris Paul.

The unexpected sale of the Rockets has garnered interest from suitors around the world. The multi-platinum recording artist boasts 105 million followers on Instagram alone.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Beyonce is now deciding whether or not she wants to invest in the Houston Rockets.

She is one of the most influential celebrities, and on par with soccer star Lionel Messi, according to the Marketing Arm's Celebrity DBI database.
