NBA All-Star James Harden joins the board of luxury e-commerce platform Saks as an independent member. The multi-hyphenate Brooklyn Nets point guard has made a minority investment in the company, as he brings in a fresh new set of expertise and perspective.

Saks will be a new addition in Harden’s investment and entrepreneurial portfolio along with minority ownership of Major League Soccer’s Houston Dynamo and the National Women’s Soccer League’s Houston Dash, stakes in brands such as Therabody, BodyArmor, Art of Sport, Stance and Pura, where he serves as Creative Director and the founding of Thirteen, a Houston-based fine dining restaurant.

“As we work to build this new board, James is an important and valuable addition. With experience in growing businesses and as someone who values self-expression through fashion, I am confident that he will bring a distinct point of view that will help us better deliver for our customers,” Richard Baker Saks’ Executive Chairman said in the press release. “His expertise, combined with that of our other board members, will enable Saks to further capitalize on the significant growth opportunity within luxury e-commerce.”

Harden added, “I am honored to join the Saks board and to be a part of a company that is paving the future of luxury retail. This is an exciting opportunity for me to combine two of my personal passions – a love of fashion and teaming up with brands that have the potential to lead while making an impact on the communities they serve. I look forward to working with the Saks team, and to having a direct impact on the company’s future success, the fashion community and its customers.”
