Paul Allen, the owner of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers, has died from complications of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, his family announced. He was 65.
The Microsoft co-founder was also a part owner of the MLS Seattle Sounders.
Under his ownership, the Seahawks reached the Super Bowl three times, including a victory in Super Bowl XLVIII over the Denver Broncos, the Trail Blazers reached the NBA Finals twice (in 1990 and 1992), while the Sounders won the 2016 MLS Cup.
It is unclear what will happen to the Seahawks and Trail Blazers but a report on Monday indicated that they could be sold.
