Dolan look­ing to sell Lib­erty

The Times-Tribune - - Sports -

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.
