Tulsans to Meet With WNBA President: Franchise in the Making?

The push for a WNBA team in Tulsa - it exists in the Tulsa media, if nowhere else - continues as WNBA President Donna Orender will meet this evening with Tulsa community leaders regarding Tulsa's chances of securing a WNBA franchise, whether relcation or expansion.

Atlanta Dream President Bill Bolen is interviewed regarding the last time a new franchise was created - ours. Bolen lets Dream fans know that in terms of ESPN rankings, Atlanta is the #1 TV market for the WNBA.

A quote from the article:

"You have to be willing to invest and take the time to build a brand," Bolen said in a Tuesday phone interview. "If an ownership group isn't willing to take the time and build resources to build a brand, even in a great market like Atlanta, things won't happen overnight. We still have a long way to go."
