Cleveland Browns star Myles Garrett has purchased a minority stake in the Cleveland Cavaliers, the NBA franchise announced Wednesday.
Garrett will also serve as a brand ambassador for the Cavaliers.
“I have admired the Cavaliers organization’s hard work, tenacity and dedication to the community since my early days in Cleveland,” Garrett said in a statement. “To have the opportunity to join this impressive and purpose-filled franchise, under (Dan Gilbert’s) leadership, is truly a dream come true.”
The Browns’ 2017 first-round pick, Garrett has made four Pro Bowls and recorded 82 sacks over his NFL career. He’s involved in the early conversation for Defensive Player of the Year after starting the 2023 season with 7.5 sacks and a league-leading three forced fumbles through six games.
The Cavaliers begin their 2023 campaign Wednesday against the Brooklyn Nets.
