Wes Edens is a lover of all things sports, and he has proven that by buying a few of the teams in a variety of leagues. The latest purchase is for Aston Villa, a professional soccer team, though prior to this, he had purchased the Milwaukee Bucks, an NBA team. The fans are truly appreciative of these purchases as he has aided in bringing a certain level of success to each of these where it did not exist before. In fact, each of these teams was considered some of the worst ones in their respective sports, meaning Edens had his work cut out for him.
The first goal of Wes Edens for these teams is to bring some of the top players in each of the sports to them. For the Bucks, the most loyal player they currently have is Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is also one of the top players in all of the NBA. For either of the teams, he wants to draw players in by allowing the teams to be places where they can grow. That has even proven to be significant for even All-Star NBA players like Jrue Holiday who joined the Bucks in the year 2020 and has brought tremendous success.
Though Wes Edens devotes a lot of time and effort to bring success to these teams, it is an investment opportunity as well. He has almost tripled the money that he put into Aston Villa, for instance, as they are now worth over $341 million. The Bucks have risen in valuation to over a few billion dollars, so it really is a worthwhile opportunity for Edens and the work he puts forth. It is not all about the money though, as he also wants to bring the teams success that is meant to last wellin to the future.
