AWAITING APPROVAL: In New Orleans, Smith cites a source as saying that the NBA BOG “is poised to formally approve the sale” of the Hornets to Tom Benson “shortly after the Louisiana legislature ratifies the state's capital outlay bill which is expected to include monies for improvements to New Orleans Arena.” Approval of the capital outlay bill “is the last impediment before the NBA endorses Benson's purchase.” By law, the legislature “must conclude its business for this session by 6 p.m. Monday.” The NBA “would likely then convene a conference call of its governors, possibly on Tuesday, to approve the Hornets' sale” (New Orleans TIMES-PICAYUNE, 6/1).
