Like the rest of the baseball world, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is waiting to see what will happen with the Los Angeles Dodgers franchise.

With owner Frank McCourt likely to lose the team by the end of June, Cuban told TMZ recently that one of MLB's most intriguing franchises won't be an easy cleanup.

"They [MLB] might just take it back and decide not to sell it for a while, right, because they're not stupid, either," Cuban said in an interview with TMZ. "They might say we'll take it back, we'll fix it up some, and clean up some of the mess and then we'll sell it."

However, if and when the "mess" gets cleaned up, Cuban has expressed interest in buying the franchise.

"If the deal is right and they're fixable, then I'm very interested," he said.

The deal will have to be right, as the estimated $800 million value, according to Forbes, is steep even for Cuban. However, if MLB can fix the situation in Los Angeles, Cuban could be donning a Dodgers cap sometime soon.
