Why do people here think just because a team is being sold, it automatically means that they'll move? Abandoning the 4th largest market in the country and one of the NBA's flagship cities...doesn't at all make sense.

All this did for Comcast is essentially free up some extra cash to finish their purchase of NBC Universal.

Default Sale of 76ers expected to conclude next week

The 76ers sale was agreed to a long while back, but the actual final transactions to make it official aren't done yet, but should be soon.

Default Re: Sale of 76ers expected to conclude next week

Last week, the NBA Board of Governors approved the sale of the team by Comcast-Spectacor to a group led by billionaire Joshua Harris, co-founder of Apollo Global Management. Harris grew up in the Philadelphia area and graduated from the Wharton School of Business. Today at the Palestra, the group will be introduced to the media at an 11:30 a.m. news conference.

The sale was completed in July, but needed league approval. Forbes magazine put the team's value at $330 million. The new owners paid about $280 million.

-- Reported by the Philadelphia Daily News

only reason it sold so low is because they basically aren't getting the TV money with it.
