Jerry Jones is not salty, even though soon he won’t be the richest owner in Texas anymore. Eventually, when the sale of the Dallas Mavericks gets wrapped up in a few days, the Mavericks’ current owner, Mark Cuban, will hold that title.

Cuban bought a major chunk of the Mavericks back in 2000 from Ross Perot Jr. for $285 million. 23 years later, the Shark Tank contributor is set to boast an asking price of around $3.5 billion to share most of his shares in the NBA team with Miriam Adelson.

Jones believes that Cuban selling the Mavericks is a smart move, and he is on board with it. During his routine appearance on 105.3 The Fan Radio show, the veteran Dallas Cowboys owner said,

As far as the decision Mark made, I’ll go along with his decisions anytime. He knows how to make good ones; he’s made them, and he has a great story of his career doing what he’s done. He didn’t do that by being dumb. I promise you, this will be in the best interest, in my mind, of sports and the Maverick fans.

The Mavericks will be in good hands (definitely with deep pockets) after Adelson takes over from Cuban. Compared to Cuban, whose net worth is around $6.2 billion, Adelson’s bank records say that she has around $32 billion in her locker.

Jerry Jones revealed that Adelson’s are ‘fine people’ and the Mavericks would be able to take the next step with the significant injection of capital.

They’re fine people. She’s outstanding—a doctor who came from Israel as an adult and is savvy, savvy, savvy. And she’s got a good organization with her there and will unquestionably do a great job.

It’s not like Cuban won’t be part of the Mavericks family going forward. According to NBA insider Marc Stein, the 65-year-old will assume the role of “alternate governor,” while Patrick Dumont (a member of the Dumont family who is jointly buying the basketball team with Adelson) will take over the role of “Mavericks governor.”

The Dallas Mavericks are one of the world's most successful and recognizable sports franchises that has won an NBA championship. It also has a long history of attracting international superstars and has been supported by a dedicated and passionate fanbase and leadership group led by Mark Cuban.

It seems like a great time to be a Texan. Both NFL teams from this region—the Dallas Cowboys (9-3) and the Houston Texans (6-5)—are a force to be reckoned with this season. The Texas Rangers won the World Series (baseball), and now the Mavericks will become one of the richest NBA franchises.
