Manchester Seriously Pursuing D-League Membership

It goes without saying that the solid teams in the ABA are all looking for a way out before the 2008-2009 season begins (if it begins).  I still think that in a perfect world the north eastern teams would all join the NBA-DL, and I talked about Manchester’s d-league dreams a few weeks ago.

 The New Hampshire Union Leader is reporting that they’re seriously looking into membership for as soon as next year.  (On an unrelated note:  how awesome is it that the NH paper is called the Union Leader?)  There are three things I found interesting in the article:

  • Initial league fees for the D-league are about $1 000 000
  • Manchester are only drawing about 300 fans
  • The have an owner who made his fortune on wall street and retired at 32.
