Chris Cochrane talked to Levingston about where D-League talks are right now. The short version is: who knows? Definately vague. I sort of expected to hear one way or another sometime last month, so I guess you could take it that the lack of a clear “no” from the D-League could be good news… or they just don’t think saying no to a Canadian backwater is a priority.
I know that the organization see a move to the PBL as a move sideways and that the general feeling is (or at least was right after the last game of the season) that in order to grow the team and the brand a move to the D-League was needed. Without a move to the D-league I think it’s doubtful that the team could be profitable. The organization lost tons of money last year and they really need the D-League name to make it work in this city. So let’s just hope we hear something soon.
