Glad to hear it finally happened! Robert Pera seems like a guy who will spend money and allow the team to continue to flourish

The guy who bought them is from California. It says there's a guarantee that the team stays in Memphis, but not why there's a guarantee. Don't forget that Michael Heisley broke a promise to Vancouver, British Columbia, when he moved the team to Memphis in 2001. Maybe Michael Pera is a Californian sleeper agent plotting to move the team to San Jose, a mere 24 miles from his hometown.

Nope. Local owners have first right of refusal. Plus $100 M penalty to local government plus Pera has < 50%. Grizzlies are here in Memphis to stay. Stern reiterated the same thing in his news conference.
