View Full Version : OKC Hornets - inside information

Hey everyone, I received some information from a decent source, who would like to remain anonymous. I asked the mayor to verify the information, and he wouldn't comment.

There may be a deal in the works to get a group of local investors to put up money to purchase a huge chunk of the Hornets to keep them in Oklahoma City. Names were not mentioned, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Gaylords and Express Sports were involved. Such a deal would possibly keep the Hornets in Oklahoma City. If this happened, such a deal wouldn't be announced for months. So keep your ears and eyes open.

As I've said, I can't confirm this, and right now the reports aren't for sure. So don't go reporting this in the media or anything. Thought I'd let you know what could be coming down the pipe.

As I said, I asked the mayor about it, and he refused to comment.

That would be way cool, Patrick, but, be cautious about optimism, at least that is my counsel. See this post:
