Rock­ets put up for sale

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS - KRISTIE RIEKEN

Hous­ton Rock­ets owner Les­lie Alexan­der is sell­ing the team.

Rock­ets CEO Tad Brown made the an­nounce­ment Mon­day, hours af­ter he said Alexan­der made the de­ci­sion.

Alexan­der took over as owner on July 30, 1993, and the Rock­ets went on to win back-to-back ti­tles in 1994-95.

Brown says Alexan­der had been ap­proached over the years by those look­ing to buy the team, but that he never con­sid­ered it un­til very re­cently.

Brown says he will be work­ing with the league of­fice to fa­cil­i­tate things while they look for a new owner.

There is no set timetable for the sale, but Brown says they want to find the right buyer and won’t rush the process.
