Report: Ellison wants to buy Grizzlies, move team to San Jose

Saturday, March 17, 2012

imageApparently the Oracle CEO hasn’t gotten the NBA out of his system. There’s a report out of Memphis that the one-time Warriors wanna-be owner--who's been rumored for months to be angling for a franchise to call his own--wants to buy the Grizzlies and move the team to San Jose.

Add: But don’t hold your breath. Grizzlies majority owner Michael Heisley tells the Memphis Commercial Appeal that while the team is on the block for the right price, moving it anywhere is unlikely. That’s because the franchise is obligated to the FedExForum through 2021, and, among other things, it would require the city of Memphis’ consent to move the franchise before then.
