The report Wednesday said Sculley declined to comment, but told the Canadian newspaper that he has been a long-time BlackBerry fan and user.
BlackBerry, based in Waterloo, Ontario, once dominated the smartphone market but put itself up for sale after being overtaken by Apple's iPhone and devices using Google's Android operating system.
"The only thing I would say is, I think there's a lot of future value in Blackberry," Sculley told the newspaper. "But without experienced people who have run this type of business, and without a strategic plan, it would be really challenging."
Sculley could not immediately be reached to comment on the report or confirm the quotes.
