Chris Paul looks to be as shrewd of a businessman as he can be in addition to being a shrewd floor general. The Phoenix Suns All-Star is getting into team ownership with the Rajasthan Royals.

Paul is investing in the Royals, a cricket team in the Indian Premier League, along with Larry Fitzgerald and Kelvin Beachum, both former players for the Arizona Cardinals. The team announced the trio of investors and Paul sported the gear of his new team during the Suns’ playoff run.

As the Suns look to face off with the Dallas Mavericks, Paul told Marc Spears of Andscape that the game of cricket is growing quickly. Finding two other athletes to do it with led to him getting involved with the Royals, who are currently third in IPL standings with a 6-4 record.

“With my team and my brother, we’re always looking into things and studying the market,” Paul said. “The game is growing unbelievably if you’re following what is going on with cricket in sports. That is something I wanted to get into.”

Paul also explained that cricket will always be one of the dominant sports in India, even as basketball grows in popularity. The Suns’ star said that the potential of the cricket is too good to pass up.

“The potential is unreal, especially in India,” Paul said. “Honestly, as far as the game of basketball, it’s trying to grow in India. But cricket rules. It’s been an education process for me, too. It’s something I’m excited about.”

While Paul dominates in the NBA postseason with the Suns, he will also turn his attention to winning for another squad. The Chris Paul-era Rajasthan Royals could register lots of interest in the United States as long as Paul doesn’t take ownership lessons from the Suns’ owner.
