Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver Wants To Bring NBA Owners To The Forefront

THE COST OF DOING BUSINESS: Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban on Saturday said that NBA expansion "probably is on the horizon." He said, "There's a good chance of it happening, but I have no idea when." Cuban added that the key to "getting a 31st NBA franchise, or perhaps two at a time, will be the fee those cities/owners are willing to pay to enter the league." He said, "I just think the price of the expansion fee has to be so high that the NBA owners think, 'OK, we're crazy not to do it.' What that number is, I don't know" (DALLASNEWS.com, 11/9).
