Hmmmmmm, wonder if this impacts if Gay is on the market or not. Probably not since he's loaded.

Sources say Heisley, 75, has agreement to sell team to Pera, 34, pending league approval. Pera one of Forbes' top 10 youngest billionaires

He's a Southern California guy. Probably a huge Laker fan. Watch Memphis make sweet deals in the future to help Los Angeles make the Finals. Hey, I'm just sayin', things in the NBA run on a broken circuit.

The Sport Market
Quote:
“The Raptors have all the elements of a team that should be among the top-10 in the NBA as far as overall franchise management is concerned,” noted Mayenknecht. “They are in the fifth-largest sports and entertainment market in North America and are strengthened by an ownership structure that also includes the Maple Leafs, Toronto FC, the Toronto Marlies, the Air Canada Centre and more. A playoff berth is the next requisite step in order for the Raptors to build on their current 12th- place in business operations. Movement on court is what’s needed to get the team into the top-10 in business and overall.”


Playoff contention, according to Mayenknecht, would easily propel the Raptors into the top-10 in NBA attendance and box office production.


“A winning team would translate into top-8 if not top-5 status in the NBA in terms of business operations performance,” suggested Mayenknecht, who served as the team’s communications and public relations executive in its pre-operational phase in 1994-’95 before accepting an offer to become Vice-President of Communications and Public Relations for the old Vancouver Grizzlies.
I agree here. In the past we've been top 10 pretty often.
