Dolan looking to sell Liberty
The New York Liberty are up for sale.
One of the WNBA’s original franchises, the Liberty have been owned by James Dolan and Madison Square Garden since the league was founded in 1996 and started play the next year.
While all of the eight original WNBA franchises were owned and affiliated with NBA teams, only three of the 12 teams now have NBA partners — Indiana, Phoenix and Minnesota.
New York has reached the playoffs in 15 of its 21 seasons but has never won the title. It has had the best record in the Eastern Conference the past three seasons.
The team was fourth in attendance this season, averaging 9,889 fans, with attendance growing 8 percent over the last three seasons.
