08:29 AM ET 09.19 | Well, that didn't take long. AEG had barely put itself up for sale Tuesday evening when speculation began to mount that Los Angeles billionaire Patrick Soon-Shiong may be in the running to buy all or part of the entertainment giant, according to a person familiar with the situation unauthorized to speak publicly on the matter. The Anschutz Co., run by Denver billionaire Philip Anschutz, said it is seeking a buyer for its AEG subsidiary, which has stakes in the L.A. Live entertainment venue in downtown Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Kings professional hockey team and the Los Angeles Galaxy pro soccer team. The person told The Times that Soon-Shiong has already met with Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson.

I understand he can get Phoenix for only $150 million................but, 90 cents of the purchase price has to be in cash. May slow it down.

No time to sell like right after you win the Stanley Cup to maximize your profits.
