HoopsHype San Francisco rumors
Following up a report from the Merc’s Warriors fan blogger, Adam Lauridsen… I asked Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob if the team has decided that the Piers 30-32 site in San Francisco will be their home starting in 2015. Lacob’s answer, via email: “We are not prepared to make any announcements at this time,” Lacob said. Not exactly a stirring denial of Lauridsen’s report, and you can bet Lacob knows it isn’t close to a denial. San Jose Mercury-News
