Stars for sale, may re­lo­cate

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

The San An­to­nio Stars said they are in ne­go­ti­a­tions to be sold and re­lo­cated, and a per­son with knowl­edge of the sit­u­a­tion told The Associated Press that the buyer is based in Las Ve­gas. It is un­clear who the buyer is or if the WNBA fran­chise would move to Las Ve­gas. The per­son spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity Thurs­day night be­cause nei­ther the team or league have dis­closed in­for­ma­tion about the buyer. The Stars are one of five pro teams owned and op­er­ated by Spurs Sports & En­ter­tain­ment, in­clud­ing San An­to­nio’s NBA team. The Stars re­leased a state­ment on Twit­ter an­nounc­ing the ne­go­ti­a­tions and of­fer­ing their “deep­est grat­i­tude” to team em­ploy­ees and fans. WNBA spokesman Dina Skokos con­firmed in a state­ment that there are on­go­ing talks to sell the fran­chise but pro­vided no de­tails about the ne­go­ti­a­tions. Any sale must be ap­proved by the WNBA Board of Gover­nors.
