It is publicly known that Mark Cuban wants to buy a baseball team. There are some mixed signals coming from Cuban's camp, as he says he is reluctant to buy the team because of the giant mess they are in, but at the same time it appears that the role he could play of rescuing the Dodgers appeals to him.
Another roadblock is that MLB seems reluctant to take on Cuban, who is known to rock the boat a little, even though he is a great sports owner who could bring the Dodgers back into prominence.
In the end, while Cuban is probably the best owner in the mix, his reluctance to deal with the mess the McCourt has put the Dodgers in (including the possibility that McCourt will manage to retain control of the stadium and surrounding Dodger property, but not the team), along with MLB's reluctance to let him in, Mark Cuban will probably not end up owning the Dodgers.
