NEW YORK (AP) It's been a year since James Dolan announced his intent to sell the New York Liberty, and the team is still on the market.
There have been several potential buyers and a few have gotten close to purchasing the team, but for various reasons all the potential deals fell through. Even without a new owner on the horizon and the Liberty in the same situation as last November, there is no danger of the team ceasing to exist this winter.
"There is no risk of the Liberty folding in the offseason," NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a phone interview. "Jim has been very helpful to the league on the Liberty. Even though the team wasn't sold on his initial timeline, he indicated he would do whatever is necessary to support the transition to a new owner."
