Memphis Grizzlies Rumors: Could Robert Pera Move the Team?


As we all know, the Memphis Grizzlies got sold to a Californian billionaire named Robert Pera. Usually, when teams are sold to an owner who is out of the team's location area, there is always going to be rumors popping up of the organization relocating.

It happened before, such as the Seattle Supersonics a few years back when they made the move to go to Oklahoma City. And we can't deny the fact that it could be a possibility, since the Grizzlies have been in rumors before in the past about relocating.

However, Micheal Heisley sold the team for $350 million to Pera in the first place: not moving the team. He has had other suitors, but they wanted to relocate, which is something Heisley is not interested in letting happen. But could it happen with their new, young owner from San Jose? Could the Grizzlies move to California?

It's possible, but it won't be able to happen for at least about a decade. Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com tweeted saying the following:

There's a lot of things that can happen in the next nine years. There could be a new owner or San Jose could even have an NBA team (as it's the believed relocation spot for Memphis, possibly).

But we won't have to worry about that, at least for right now.

The Grizzlies are here to stay in Memphis.
