Mark Cuban probably isn't going to run for president in 2024 despite rampant speculation following Tuesday night's breaking news that he is selling a piece of the Dallas Mavericks to casino mogul Miriam Adelson.


He is also slated to exit his lucrative role as host of the reality TV show 'Shark Tank' after Season 16.

Cuban hasn't spoken publicly about running for president in quite some time, but many people get excited about the possibility of a practical, middle-of-the-road, non-politician putting his name in the hat.

So many people, in fact, that gambling website slashed Cuban's 2024 President Elect odds from 250/1 to 80/1 during the last 12 hours following a reported "onslaught of bets."

The bookmaker also created odds for Cuban's potential running mate in the 2024 Election, and there are more than 30 intriguing names on the list.

The favorites include politicians such as Mitt Romney, Joe Manchin, Liz Cheney while there are dark horses such as Condoleeza Rice, Andrew Yang and Oprah Winfrey. The long shots include people like George Clooney, RFK Jr. and Michael Bloomberg.

In 2020 Cuban publicly floated an independent run for president. He confirmed in July that he engaged in past conversations with No Labels, the bipartisan group seeking ballot access for a third-party presidential candidate next year in all 50 states. His political views have leaned toward libertarianism.

Cuban was initially supportive of businessman-turned-U.S.-President Donald Trump but has since called him "an idiot".

“Look, personally I don't have a problem with the guy,” The then-62-year-old Cuban said of Trump in 2020 after Joe Biden became President. "Now professionally as the president, I think he's an idiot. You know, I never thought he was smart in talking to him.”

Cuban's choice to sell part of the Mavs to Adelson is an interesting choice as her late husband was among the biggest donors to the GOP.  She, too, continues to donate heavily to the party.

All that said, Vegas doesn't expect Cuban to run in 2024 as the site has set his chances at 20/1. His odds for launching a 2024 campaign...a bit better at 6/1.

If Cuban isn't running, then what is next for the serial entrepreneur? Of course, there are odds for that as well, which you can find below.
