Joseph Tsai, the co-founder of Chinese internet giant Alibaba, has agreed to purchase a 49% stake in the Brooklyn Nets, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe report.

Under the current agreement, Tsai will have the option to purchase a controlling interest in the Nets in a few years, ESPN reports.

Mikhail Prokhorov is the current majority owner of the Nets. He will cede that title to Tsai in four years assuming the latter decides to move forward.

The agreement values the Nets at $2.3 billion, ESPN reports. The agreement reportedly does not include the Barclays Center, for which Prokhorov is also a majority shareholder.
