Benson bought low. Between the new CBA being favorable to owners and the league seeing a resurgence in popularity, team values have risen. On the plus side, if the money is flowing freely the owners are a lot more willing to throw the players a bone in 2017 when they can renegotiate the new CBA. So hopefully we won't see a work stoppage.

This kinda shite with MIL (the least valuable team according to Forbes) fetching $550mm makes expansion more palatable. Imagine what the expansion fee the owners could charge to get into SEA. $650? $700 million?
That's a one time dividend of a cool $23.33 million per owner.
