WNBA’s Stars negotiating sale to Las Vegas, Nev., buyer
The San Antonio Stars are in negotiations to be sold, and a person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press the buyer is based in Las Vegas, Nev.
The team announced the discussions Thursday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because neither the team or the WNBA have disclosed information about the buyer.
“Negotiations with a potential buyer of the Stars team are ongoing,” WNBA spokeswoman Dina Skokos said in a statement. “Once those discussions are concluded, we will provide additional information.”
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.
