According to an AP report, the New York Liberty will remain under control by James Dolan and Madison Square Garden as the search for a suitable owner(s) continues. Until further notice, Dolan and MSG will keep the team.

President Andy Lustgarten of Madison Square Garden stated the following in a press release:

“While we have had numerous interested parties, we are going to continue to operate the team until we identify the right new owner to steward this valuable New York franchise. We will have more to share soon.”

The team was put up for sale back in November.

The report stated most of the Liberty’ games will not be played in the Garden, however, in a near arena in the suburban area, Westchester County.

An earlier report today rumored New York would be playing its home games in Westchester County Center — home of the New York Knicks G-League team.

Stay tuned as the story develops.
