Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban spoke out recently when asked about a potential presidential bid come 2020, hinting that it just might happen.

Cuban's latest comment on his political future came during the Viewpoint podcast when former Democratic lawmaker Bakari Sellers asked him whether was considering running for president of the United States.

"Yes. Considering, yes," Cuban replied to Sellers. "Ready to commit to it, no."

The billionaire businessman and star of ABC's "Shark Tank" was leading President Trump in a 2020 presidential poll released in August by Public Policy Polling. According to that poll, Cuban received the backing of 42 percent of respondents while 38 percent of those surveyed picked Trump. An additional 20 percent said they were unsure.

Cuban has previously said he would only run for the executive office title if he found solutions to concrete policy issues like health care and the plight of the working class, which he echoed in his latest comments.

"If it comes down to, ‘Do I think I can win because I can convince more people to vote for me?' Then no, I won't run," Cuban said.
