Drake Gives Green Light to Sacramento Kings to Use His Private Jumbo Jet

The NBA team has to travel to India for two pre-season games, and shooting guard Buddy Hield says in an interview the lack of Wi-Fi in the jet could be good for team bonding.

AceShowbiz - Drake has loaned the Sacramento Kings basketball team his private jumbo jet for a pre-season trip to India.

According to TMZ.com, the National Basketball Association (NBA) franchise, who are owned by Indian-American businessman Vivek Ranadive, travel to the subcontinent to play two games later this week (end October 6).

Despite being a fan of rival team the Toronto Raptors, the "Hotline Bling" hitmaker has allowed the California team to rent his $200 million (£160 million) Boeing 767 jet, so they can travel to India in style.

However, not all the Kings' players are delighted to be travelling on the luxury jet, as it doesn't have Wi-Fi - with shooting guard Buddy Hield telling ABC10's Sean Cunningham that he would have to "download a bunch of movies" or play cards to get through the 20-hour flight to India.

He did admit that the long trip without distractions could be good for team bonding.

Although he is pals with Ranadive, Drake is best known in basketball circles for his devotion to his hometown Raptors team, for whom he acts as a global ambassador and was courtside when they won the NBA championship earlier this year.
