Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake wants an NBA team back in Baltimore.
“I would love it,” Rawlings-Blake said Wednesday on 98 Rock’s morning show when asked about the possibility of professional basketball returning to the city permanently.
The comments were made after the mayor announced that the Washington Wizards would play an Oct. 17 preseason game at the Baltimore Arena against the New York Knicks. The game will be the Wizards’ first game in Charm City in 14 years.
Rawlings-Blake said she has “been in communication with other people who are like-minded” about bringing an NBA team to Charm City.
“It is not out of the realm of possibility,” the mayor told 98 Rock. “There would be obstacles but I have hope.”
