NBA Franchise Notes: 76ers Not Raising Prices For ’07-08
Published April 20, 2007
SONICS: With the Sonics looking at possibly relocating before their KeyArena lease expires in 2010, Save Our Sonics & Storm’s Steven Pyeatt in a guest commentary for the DAILY OKLAHOMAN writes, “The message we are sending to Oklahoma City is don’t get too excited at what you see going on in Seattle right now. ... We all hope you get to have a NBA team in your fine city, but we will not allow it to be our team” (DAILY OKLAHOMAN, 4/20). Sources said that if the team “gets the NBA’s okay” to move to Oklahoma City, Sonics Owner Clay Bennett will “likely go after” Spurs GM R.C. Buford (ESPN THE MAGAZINE, 4/23 issue).
T’WOLVES: In Minneapolis, Sid Hartman notes just 64% of T’Wolves season-ticket holders have renewed for the ’07-08 season (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 4/20).
