To NBA About Pistons Sale Process
TIME TO COME TOGETHER? In Detroit, Bob Wojnowski writes the Pistons and Red Wings "need to finance and share a new arena in downtown Detroit." Having separate arenas "isn't nearly as economically feasible as it once was." Sharing a venue "seems simple, but is fraught with complications." If Bill Davidson "were still alive, this would not even be discussed." But Red Wings Owner Mike Ilitch is 80 years old and "loves big moves, and this could be a chance to seal an already-amazing legacy." But for the move to happen, "clustering all four Detroit pro teams downtown, Ilitch would have to take the aggressive lead" (DETROIT NEWS, 1/20).
