In the early stages of 2021, one of the questions many WNBA fans have is what the ownership status of the Atlanta Dream will be after co-owner Kelly Loeffler, a near-pariah among players, lost her Georgia senate race to Reverend Raphael Warnock.
Contrary to what the conventional belief may have been, there may actually be some activity on that front.
In addition to Loeffler, the other co-owner, Mary Brock, is reported to be nearing a sale of the Dream, says Kevin Blackistone of the Washington Post.
A spokesperson sent Blackistone a text, describing that a sale of the franchise was “close to being finalized.” Said spokesperson also mentioned that “additional information will be provided.”
Brock selling her minority stake in the team, of course, would not require a sale from Loeffler. But wisdom appears to be that if Brock were to sell that it may prompt similar action from Loeffler.
In this, @ProfBlackistone reports that Atlanta Dream majority owner Mary Brock is expected to sell her stake soon, which could be the first domino toward Kelly Loeffler doing the same. https://t.co/lXoGrYuXk9
