Like most businesses in these difficult economic times, the WNBA has been forced to cut costs and make changes. But, especially because extravagance has never been part of the WNBA, the league continues to grow despite the financial climate.
The new owners of the Seattle SuperSonics and the WNBA's Storm said Monday they had reached an agreement in principle to acquire 21.2 acres of land on the shore of Lake Washington in suburban Renton for a new arena.
Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire sent a letter to Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels on Wednesday, urging him to let the Seattle SuperSonics and Storm basketball franchises know where the city stands on making improvements to KeyArena.
