The NBA’s wealthiest owners

Used cars have been very, very good to New Orleans Hornets owner Tom Benson.

That’s a big stake in the fortune that puts Benson, the business magnate with strong ties to San Antonio, on . Coming in at No. 360 with a net worth of $1.2 billion, he’s one of , including:

Paul Allen Portland, (20, $15 billion)

Rich DeVos, Orlando (67, $5.1 billion)

Micky Arison, Miami (68, $5 billion)

Stan Kroenke, Denver (92, $4 billion)

The Dolan family, New York (132, $3 billion)

Tom Gores, Detroit (192, $2.5 billion)

Mark Cuban, Dallas (206, $2.3 billion)

Herb Simon, Indiana (218, $2.2 billion)

Dan Gilbert, Cleveland; Donald Sterling, L.A. Clippers (t250, $1.9 billion)

Glen Taylor, Minnesota (285, $1.7 billion)

For reference’s sake, the net worth of Spurs owner Peter Holt is estimated at a paltry $80 million — barely tip money for this crowd.
