LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The new owner of the Dodgers may be looking to add the Lakers, Kings and Galaxy to its roster of professional Los Angeles sports teams.

The chief executive of Guggenheim Partners, Mark Walters, says his company – which just bought the Dodgers for $2.15 billion in May – is exploring a bid on AEG, the Los Angeles Times reports.

AEG, currently owned by billionaire Philip Anschutz, signed a deal Wednesday with the city of Los Angeles to build a $3.5-billion football stadium that will seat 72,000 fans, as well as a new $315 million convention hall, ballroom and plaza. So whoever becomes the new owner of AEG, will also add an NFL team to its roster.

Before the Guggenheim Partners expressed interest, L.A.’s richest man, Patrick Soon-Shiong, was also discussed as exploring a bid on AEG.
