From O'Neal's post, it looks like he sold his stake to private equity fund Arctos Sports Partners, which specialized in acquiring minority stakes of sports professional teams. 

The former Los Angeles Lakers superstar had become a minority owner of the Sacramento Kings back in 2013. 

Indian businessman Vivek Ranadive remains the majority owner and chairman of the Sacramento Kings. He acquired the majority of the franchise back in 2013 from the Maloof family.
