Billionaire Mark Cuban is sharing some of his wealth with the staff of the NBA team he once majority owned: the Dallas Mavericks.

Cuban recently sold enough stock to shed his majority stake in the team — in a $3.5 billion deal that will see Adelson’s family take over.

As a thank you for their years of hard work, Cuban announced in a letter to Mavericks employees that they would be receiving bonuses.

The payouts were based on «a framework that took into account how long you worked for the Mavs» — with promises that the money would arrive in their bank accounts «in the very near future.»

Bonuses would be paid out by the Cubans and the two new owners Miriam Adelson, Sivan Dumont and Patrick Dumont.

While Cuban sold most of the Mavericks, the billionaire and longtime team owner retained a 27 percent stake in the franchise.

Cuban is also still in charge of the Mavs’ basketball operations — he said he feels the business could be better with a new owner in control.

«When you get a world-class partner that can come in and expand your revenue base and you’re not dependent on things that you were in the past,» Cuban said, «that’s a huge win.»
