Boston Celtics All-Star forward Kevin Garnett is about to become a small shareholder in the American-owned Roma football club.
Roma has confirmed to The Associated Press that Garnett accepted an offer from James Pallotta, one of the four Boston executives that closed a deal in August to become the first foreign majority owners of a Serie A club.
Pallotta is also a minority owner of the Celtics.
Details of the deal are still being worked out, but Garnett could also be used in the promotion of the Roma brand.
Earlier this year, Garnett's fellow NBA star LeBron James obtained a small stake in English Premier League club Liverpool from the Fenway Sports Group.
New Roma president Thomas DiBenedetto is also a limited partner in the Fenway group, which owns the Boston Red Sox baseball team.
