It seems that Caitlyn Clark has rescinded Ice Cube’s invitation to join his Big3 basketball team. On Friday (March 29), before her team’s upcoming game against Colorado, the Iowa Hawkeyes superstar told reporters she was unaware of any offer until the former N.W.A. rapper shared it with the public. 

The rapper/actor reportedly offered the 22-year-old $5,000,000. The deal would also allow Clark an opportunity to join the WNBA. 

However, Clark noted that her “main focus” right now is basketball. She also stated that when it comes to requests like these, she has a team that handles such matters: “I honestly don’t talk about those things with really anybody. I have other people that deal with it, and they haven’t said a word to me about it.” 

In response, Ice Cube told CNN via a statement that while Clark’s offer was intended to “remain private,” since the news has already publicized the proposal, he’s still determined to recruit the college basketball star in the future.

“We intended the offer to remain private while Caitlin Clark plays for the championship,” Ice Cube said. “But I won’t deny what’s now already out there: BIG3 made a historic offer to Caitlin Clark.”

He continued: “Why wouldn’t we? Caitlin is a generational athlete who can achieve tremendous success in the BIG3. … With our offer, Caitlin Clark can make history and break down even more barriers for women athletes.”
