Three weeks after the Minnesota Timberwolves announced they would move to Minneapolis, a new report says the team is considering a new home.
The Associated Press reported Tuesday that an unnamed person with knowledge of the team’s thinking said the Vikings are considering a move to a city where it can attract new corporate sponsors.
“They’re trying to get to the point where it’s not just about money, it’s about people,” the person said.
“If you’re a team that has that kind of momentum and the kind of fan base, it can be really powerful.”
Minnesota has already had some success with its new corporate partners.
The Timberwolves announced in October that it will pay $2 million for a stadium, a deal the team said it had been looking to do for more than a year.
The team also announced in January that it had signed the former Cleveland Cavaliers and Minnesota Timberwolves coach David Blatt to a five-year contract worth $60 million.
The Vikings have also signed the recently departed Kevin Love and former Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens.
