Would you vote for Mark Cuban for president? Chris Sacca would.

"There is a 100 percent chance Mark Cuban becomes president of the United States," the Silicon Valley investor told Colin Cowherd on "The Herd" on Wednesday.

Sacca, who has worked with Cuban on "Shark Tank," is confident that the owner of the Dallas Mavericks is the right man for the job.

Last September, Cuban said that he was not going to run for president, despite earlier telling CNBC that he would crush Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton if he entered the race. However, that doesn't rule out future presidential elections.

Sacca noted that Cuban could be at least as successful as Trump were he were to campaign for leader of the free world.

"The minute you're coined a billionaire in this country, everyone just takes everything you say as gospel. You can say no wrong," Sacca said. "And that's why we see Trump skating in. He says asinine things and everyone says 'well, he's a successful business guy.' Cuban has all of that, but is not an idiot."

Representatives for Donald Trump did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.

Of course, Sacca isn't the only one with thoughts about Cuban's potential presidency.

"Gee, what's he got against me?" joked Kevin O'Leary, a fellow 'shark' alongside Cuban on the hit TV show, to CNBC. "I'll tell you what, if Cuban becomes the president, I'll throw my name in for Secretary of State."
