Leiweke's future depends on how you define 'soon' Prediction: He will be here until next Spring at minimum. After that? Wide open.— Michael Grange (@michaelgrange) August 19, 2014

It would be pretty funny (and sad) if the most noteworthy accomplishment of his tenure was spending $100 million on two soccer players.
Apparently he has a 2 year non compete clause with previous employer in LA. He could go back to LA after this season ("seasons" includes all MLSE teams in my mind). Pure speculation - has he been talking to Ballmer? His family likes SoCal and there's a new billionaire owner in town...
Ballmer & Leiweke...both brash...birds of a feather. Ballmer's secret ambition is really to have a team in Seattle. TL could work on that even though there is competition.

Basketball has clear winners every night --except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.
2. Not so sure the Clips couldnt be moved to Seattle. LAL still own LA and the Clips have a lousy arrangement @ Staples and get pennies on the $ for TV rights etc comparatively. I think Silver is secretly in love with Ballmer (took 24 hrs. to stamp the xfer). There is however Hansen in Seattle who wants a team there as well. That would be a good franchise.
Time to promote Drake.
Myself (March 2014):
The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.
You'd have to be out of your mind to move a team out of LA and into Seattle. That's like going from Toronto to Hamilton.

That said, I don't care a whole lot if TL goes. The only MLSE team I care about is the Raptors, and TL already accomplished the most important goal of getting Masai for 5 years.
