Stephen Rollins Not A Viable Option To Purchase Stake In Thrashers, Say Sources

According to the AJC’s Chris Vivlamore, Los Angeles based filmmaker Stephen Rollins, and Atlanta native, has not made an offer to purchase the Thrashers and is unlikely to do so.

From the article:

An investment group led by Los Angeles filmmaker and Atlanta native Stephen Rollins has not made an offer to purchase the Thrashers and is unlikely to do so, according to several people familiar with the situation.

According to a league official, there are no buyers currently in line to purchase the franchise. According to two other people familiar with the situation, Rollins’ group is not considered a viable candidate.

Unsurprising, seeing as how people last year questioned the amount of money Rollins and his investment firm could gather to make a serious run at the team.
