    “The controlling family of the ownership group, after considerable thought and internal discussion, has decided to sell the team for estate and family planning considerations,” the statement read.

    The group said that the company’s managing board plans to have a majority of the company sold by the end of this year or early next, with the full balance expected to close in 2028.

    Wyc Grousbeck will continue to serve as Governor of the Celtics until the deal is financially completed in 2028, after becoming the majority shareholder of the team in 2002 for $360 million.

    The Celtics organization did not elaborate further on the proposed sale or prospective buyers.

    Boston’s beloved team, which has won 18 championships, the most in NBA history, isn’t the only team in the league that’s seen major changes in leadership in recent months.
