George Postolos, former president and CEO of the Houston Rockets, said the sale, if approved by three-quarters of the NBA's owners, would provide relief to Commissioner Adam Silver, enrich the Sterlings beyond most expectations and, potentially, end a five-week spectacle. "It's a positive outcome for the league and a good financial outcome for the Sterlings," Postolos said. "And they can get this story off the front page, which I think would be good for everybody."

Meanwhile, a few more details emerged about businessmen George Postolos and Tom Gores, who, the Free Press reported Thursday night, could have an interest in purchasing the Pistons. Ilitch, owner of the Red Wings and Tigers, announced Monday that he would try to buy the team from Karen Davidson, who hopes to sell before the season opener. An industry source familiar with Postolos and Gores said they were "value buyers," meaning they likely would not overspend for the Pistons (and Palace Sports & Entertainment). The source requested anonymity because he isn't authorized to speak for any of the parties, all of whom must sign nondisclosure agreements. Detroit Free Press
