Dr. Dre and Iovine are the founders of Beats Electronics, which they sold to Apple for $3 billion in 2014.

“I’m a big Dr. Dre fan, so we got a pretty good deal today,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “You saw these guys … Jimmy. We have our business of basketball meeting, which is an annual meeting. Usually it’s talk about the salary cap and stuff, so this is a little more interesting.

“They are going to talk about business, so it’s a different way of approaching it. The league approved it. It’s pretty exciting to have these guys in here. … It’s pretty awesome. Our guys are pumped up.”
