Rockets sold for $2.2 billion to Texan Tilman Fertitta

(TSX / STATS) -- Restaurant mogul Tilman Fertitta reached agreement to purchase the Houston Rockets from Leslie Alexander for $2.2 billion.

"I am truly honored to have been chosen as the next owner of the Houston Rockets," Fertitta said in a release from the team. "This is a life-long dream come true. Leslie Alexander has been one of the best owners in all of sports, and I thank him immensely for this opportunity. He has the heart of a champion."

Fertitta, who grew up in Galveston and lives in Houston, is a local restaurant mogul and one of many celebrity-status suitors who made an offer for the franchise.
