The news just broke that The Detroit Pistons will be sold to Detroit Red Wings and Tigers owner Mike Ilitch.
Crain’s business magazine reports the deal could be worked out in the next month.
I am stunned. I have covered the Pistons and Palace Sports and Entertainment on a regular basis for the last nine years. Knowing what I do about the company and about the past, I never thought that Karen Davidson would sell the team to Ilitch. I found it very admirable that Ilitch came forward to try to ”save the team from leaving the city” as he put it, I just never thought he would be chosen as the next owner.
