Kroenkes aim to keep NBA, NHL, NFL teams

Stan Kroenke says he plans to keep the NHL's Colorado Avalanche and NBA's Denver Nuggets in his family if he gains full control of the NFL's St. Louis Rams.

The Missouri billionaire owns 40 percent of the Rams and is trying to acquire the rest, but NFL rules prohibit owners from also owning clubs in the NBA, NHL or Major League Baseball.

Kroenke told The Denver Post in Tuesday's editions he would transfer some or all of the Nuggets to his 30-year-old son Josh, the Nuggets' vice president of team development. It's not clear how he would handle ownership of the Avalanche.

A spokeswoman for Kroenke Sports Enterprises didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press on Tuesday.
