Kansas City May Foot Bill To Attract Pro Team
"Kansas City Mayor Kay Barnes revealed that the city could end up building a practice facility for a Sprint Center tenant. That revelation could mean that the city might have to pay for a multimillion-dollar facility where a pro hockey or basketball team would practice."
"Pro teams often use practice facilities away from their home arenas, and cities are often asked to help pick up the tab for them. In Cleveland, the local government is paying $21 million to build a 50,000-square-foot practice facility for the NBA's Cavaliers. In New Orleans, the NBA's Hornets have threatened to leave if the city doesn't build a multimillion-dollar practice facility."
