WNBA’s Stars ne­go­ti­at­ing sale to Las Ve­gas, Nev., buyer

Santa Fe New Mexican - - SPORTS -

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.
