Miami Lakes-based BankUnited could be sold in two weeks, according to Bloomberg News. The bank has invited offers from potential buyers, with the expectation that it finalize a sale in two weeks. The bank, which had a market capitalization of $2.38 billion on Friday, could go to a number of buyers — including BB&T and TD Bank, which have been looking to expand their reach in the Sunshine State, the Sun Sentinel reported.
