Rumour: the 36ers have been sold

Seems that all of this has been kept fairly quiet, but I've heard from a couple of sources that the 36ers have been sold. Been in the works for a bit, but finalised or finalising now, I hear.

WOW!! Surely not LK unless the 36ers are in deep trouble with money!!

Would love an individual Adelaide (multi) millionaire with real basketball passion.

I heard Asian investors a while back? Not sure if that was based on anything factual.

I hope they're not allowing any of the Asian players from Shadong that played the pre season games..

^^^ I'm sure the rules around imports would prevent that from getting out of control.

Was in jest, but i hope it is a owner who wants to play with the bigger owners in the league!! They need it.

Ah crap. would have been nice to have some stability for once. How long have the current guys had it now, maybe 3 years.

They have been on the market since the current owners purchased the team..it was basically to save the team from going under..
But from what i had heard they did have the coin, albeit on a tight budget to keep them going..

Happy to hear an owner who has $$ is coming in...Not so happy if it is LK who has grabbed another team...
He'll be winning a championship no matter which way we look..

One positive of LK is that he has so much invested in the whole thing now you know he will do whatever he can to make it work. Downside, if he runs out of fund so does the league.

Id think the deal would have been progresing for a while. Likely before they went on the streak. Might have been a good buy!

Didn't Cole post he will be in Adelaide for a couple of upcoming games and he had some very exciting news.. Maybe he had managed to get the funds or a backer...

I'm a bit sleep deprived today but I believe Isaac may have been throwing out a cryptic hint there.

Lakh is part of the Indian numerical system so maybe they've been bought by Indians? It's a pit the Shahin's aren't Indian or we could have the On The Run 36ers (as opposed to the Got The Runs 36ers that played Melbourne a couple of weeks back).

Boti on twitter said not sold. I guess that could also be splitting hairs, in the process but not formally done.
