Atlanta Hawks Not About To Be Sold, According To Bruce Levenson

Well, that was fun while it lasted. After Sports Illustrated reported that the Atlanta Hawks were about to be sold, Atlanta Spirit Group member Bruce Levenson has told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Tim Tucker that the report is "not true" and that the ASG will comment soon.

This isn't the first time the Hawks have been reportedly up for sale -- it happened at least twice during the Atlanta Thrashers sale epic alone. The ASG has looked to bring on investors, just as Arthur Blank has incorporated multiple minority owners into the Atlanta Falcons fold, but for now it does appear Hawks fans are stuck with current ownership.

And whatever you can say about the Spirit Group, you can't say they didn't very clearly broadcast their intent to sell the Thrashers before actually doing so. Keep your ears tuned, though.
