Atlanta Hawks Write Open Letter to Their Fans

After it was reported that the team will have a new owner whenever the next season begins, many Atlanta Hawks fans were probably worried about the future of the franchise. Well, they shouldn’t be, at least according to the open letter Hawks President Bob Williams wrote to the fans. Read it below, via Inside Hoops:

To Our Hawks Fans,

Today it was reported that our current owners, Atlanta Spirit LLC, signed an agreement to sell a majority ownership stake in the Atlanta Hawks and Philips Arena operating rights to The Meruelo Group. Completion of the sale is subject to approval by the NBA Board of Governors, which is expected to occur later this year.

Our ultimate goal has always been and will continue to be bringing championship basketball and world class entertainment to Philips Arena and the city of Atlanta. We value and appreciate your support, and look forward to sharing many more unforgettable moments with you, our fans.

Sincerely,

Bob Williams
President, Atlanta Hawks & Philips Arena

    He has to pay the city of Atlanta about $100 million if he wants to move the team, so chances are that’s not happening.
