The Carolina Hurricanes are on the verge of being sold.

Current owner Peter Karmanos Jr. met with Dallas billionaire Tom Dundon on Thursday, and the pair later appeared at the NHL's Board of Governors meeting in Florida.

A purchase agreement is in place and the sale is expected to be announced later Thursday, according to TSN's Darren Dreger and Pierre LeBrun.

Karmanos Jr. will not be stepping aside entirely, however.

All indications are Dundon will help stabilize the team's presence in North Carolina.

"(Karmanos Jr.) had said (all) along: he's put a lot of money into this marketplace, he believes in this marketplace, the NHL believes in this marketplace," team president Don Waddell said on Nov. 29, according to Cory Lavalette of North State Journal. "Any potential buyer is not going to have that option. They know if they're buying the team, they're buying it to keep it in Raleigh, North Carolina."

Reports of discussions between Karmanos and Dundon emerged in late November.

Back in July, a purchase offer of around $500 million was submitted by Chuck Greenberg - co-owner of the Texas Rangers - but Karmanos later said he felt Greenberg couldn't afford to make the right deal.

Matt Barnes Says Becoming a Billionaire in 13 Years Is ‘Definitely Attainable’ .
Recently retired NBA agitator Matt Barnes is rich, but he’s not that rich. Barnes announced his retirement last week with a photo on Instagram of himself wearing sweats and a denim jacket. The post included the hashtag “#BillionaireBy50,” which is exactly what it sounds like. The 37-year-old Barnes thinks he can become a billionaire in the next 13 years. TMZ caught up with Barnes on Monday and asked him about his plan to become obscenely wealthy in the blink of an eye. It’s “definitely attainable,” Barnes explained, thanks to the various business interests he already has in his portfolio, including a production company. Barnes made just over $29 million in his career, but when you take out taxes, living expenses and fines from the league, he’s way farther away from a billion. Even if we suppose he saved about half of that money, he still has to make like $980 million in a little more than a decade. That’s a tough task, but if we learned anything about Barnes in 14 NBA seasons it’s that he’s going to try incredibly hard to make it happen. He might end up insulting a rival’s mother in the process, but that’s just part of being Matt Barnes.
