Thu. Jun 19 – 5:40 AM News on Rainmen future expected on Monday
Fans of the Halifax Rainmen will have to wait until at least Monday for any news on the future of the team.
Rainmen public relations consultant Nancy Sheppard said on Wednesday afternoon that majority owner Andre Levingston is still working towards resolving where the team will play in 2008-09. Levingston’s primary goal is to secure a spot in the NBA Development League and he’s been in New York this week meeting with league officials to see if he can pull that off. But if that doesn’t come together, he has other options he could explore to ensure that the team plays in a solid league this season.
Sheppard didn’t hint at what direction the Rainmen are headed and said there is still a considerable amount of work to be done before the team can say for certain what will happen next season.
“What we’re hoping to do is hold a press conference on Monday,” Sheppard said. “We just want to make sure we have (everything resolved) before we announce anything.”
I don’t work Mondays so I may try to convince them to actually let me into this press conference. I think that would be a funny way to spend a day off.
