Lacob Still Hoping New Warriors Arena Is Ready For '17-18, But Calls It A Challenge
Published January 24, 2014
WNBA TEAM IN THE FUTURE? Lacob also stated it is a "dream of ours" to acquire a WNBA franchise, as it could be "very successful in the Bay Area." He said, "We're not in a rush to do it because we're focused on our primary job right now, which is the Warriors. ... But if the opportunity came along, we would definitely do it. We have shown that we can do a sport that isn't a major, giant sport and do it well in Santa Cruz with the D-League." Lacob noted the WNBA is "getting more and more successful" and "most of the teams actually make a little bit of money or break even." Lacob has been linked to the L.A. Sparks, which is searching for a new owner. He said, "I don’t know whether we're going to get this team. It's reported we have interest. It's true, but if it stays in L.A. which is where they are today, that's also fine. We'll eventually do it" ("Gary & Larry," KNBR-AM, 1/23).
