Default Utah Flash (D-League team) are crumbling. No 2011-12 season, may fold

It was a three year experiment that has apparently failed. The Utah Flash gave it their best shot, but are closing the doors. The team is up for sale and the 2011-12 season has been suspended. A former Flash employee, who asked to not be identified, said the entire staff has been laid off, and that any season tickets sold for the upcoming season will be refunded. Daily Herald

Mark Hildebrand, the Director of the UCCU Center, confirmed that the Flash won't be playing next year. "They (Joe Brown and Drew Sellers, Flash front office) came in the office and said they're going to go dark for this next season. That means they won't be playing here this year," Hildebrand said. "They owe us about $28,000 for last season and there is one more year left on the lease." Daily Herald

Not much of a surprise considering how close they were to Salt Lake. Doesn't effect the Jazz much since they hardly took advantage of it anyway.

The Michael Jordan vs. Bryan Russell stunt killed them. But yeah, no big loss for the Jazz. Someone might buy them up and figure out a way to market them better, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
