Rumors are starting to spread that Francesco Aquilini, owner of the NHL's Vancouver Canucks, is reportedly expressing interest in purchasing the Indiana Pacers and moving the team to Vancouver, B.C.
Pacers co-owner Herb Simon are working as hard as they can to work out a new arena deal with the Indianapolis Capital Improvement Board and says he doesn't want to see Indy without an NBA team.
Simon, could be using Aquilini as leverage against the Indianapolis Capital Improvement Board.
But former Sonics owner Howard Schultz also used Clay Bennett as leverage against the Washington State Legislature. And now the Sonics no longer exist.
More to come as I get more information.
its only a rumor for now. but like the article said, the Supersonics moved, anything can happen
