Latest Deal: New Jersey Nets
Prokhorov may become the first Russian owner of a U.S. basketball team. The 6-foot-7-inch magnate is awaiting NBA approval of his proposed $200 million purchase of 80% of the New Jersey Nets and 45% of the team's planned arena in Brooklyn. (He would also assume 80% of the team's estimated $207 million debt and fund up to $60 million in future Nets losses.) Prokhorov intends to do more acquisitions in the U.S., likely in energy and nanotechnology, and aims to build Russia's first electric car. He fared better than most of his fellow oligarchs in the crisis after selling his 25% stake in Norilsk Nickel, the world's No. 1 nickel miner, for $7 billion and a 14% stake in aluminum producer Rusal in 2008. The bachelor, who practices kickboxing, likes to party in Moscow nightclubs.
