Current Carolina Hurricanes majority owner Peter Karmanos Jr. released a statement regarding reports that former Texas Rangers owner Chuck Greenberg is looking to buy the team.

The statement is open-ended, as it states that Karmanos Jr. is evaluating the offer, along with other possibilities, including “retaining his ownership” of the Hurricanes.

Bloomberg’s Scott Soshnick reported earlier today that the offer is for close to $500 million.
