Billionaire Wants To Buy Grizzlies, Move Team To San Jose
 

 
California software company CEO Larry Ellison has inquired about buying the Grizzlies in hopes of moving the team to San Jose, Ronald Tillery of The Commercial Appeal reports.

Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley downplayed the possibility, saying he'd be surprised if Ellison buys the team, and cited a lease that ties the Grizzlies to Memphis and the FedEx Forum until 2021.

Heisley said talks with Ellison, whose $36 billion makes him the country's third-richest person according to Forbes magazine, are in the initial stages. He's received several dozen other inquiries, Heisley said, and he prefers to sell the team to a Memphis buyer. The price tag Heisley has set is $350MM, according to Tillery.

Ellison, who heads up Oracle Corp., has made previous attempts in the last five years to buy the Grizzlies, according to Tillery's report, and has made unsuccessful bids for the Hornets and Warriors in recent years.

I mean seriously

Grizz have only been here 10 years and Memphis was fine before they got here. BBQ, The Blues, Elvis, Tigers > Grizzlies. Nobody gave a sh*t about the Grizzlies in memphis until last seasons playoff run. Grizz arent leaving for a while though. Not worried about article

If you have to move the grizzlies, move them back to Canada, don't let Stu Jackson run the team into the ground.
