POLITICKING IN DC: DC Mayor Vincent Gray said of possibly working with Wizards Owner Ted Leonsis to build the team's desired practice facility in the city, "We want to work with him to see if there’s something we can possibly have done. There are other cities like Philadelphia, Chicago, Cleveland, L.A., who all have done practice facilities. I’ve looked at some of the data around what they have done. They range anywhere from like $15 (million) to $25 million in cost. The question is, what is the relationship of the city to the teams that are involved?" He added, "The thing that would be important to me ... is to have it be a facility that isn’t just for the team, but really would have some important community purposes associated with it, too" (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 12/17).
