Mark Cuban 'Absolutely' Open to Being Hillary's VP

NBC's "Meet the Press"

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said he would listen to Hillary Clinton if she asks him to be her running mate.

"Absolutely," the billionaire entrepreneur told NBC's Chuck Todd in an interview that will air during Sunday's "Meet the Press" when asked if he's open to the idea.

Cuban said he would like to see Clinton, the leading Democrat in the two-person race for president, move a bit more to the center of the political spectrum.

"But the key would be, she'd have to go more to center," Cuban said. "I like the fact that Sen. Clinton has thought-out proposals. That's a good thing because at least we get to see exactly where she stands. But I think Sen. Sanders has dragged her a little bit too far to the left. Things like college tuition and other business elements that really, I think, could hurt the economy.

"If she's willing to listen, if she's willing to hear other sides of things, then I'm wide open to discussing it."

Cuban made headlines last week when he called presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump an "airhead" and said he wants to "throw bombs" at him.

"I would be like, 'Donald, I like you but you are an … airhead. You say nothing," Cuban said according to CNN.

"Donald, you're rich right? Then why don't you build a wall. You're a patriot, right?"

Cuban said earlier this week he would vote for Clinton if the election were held today.
