Rumours are that the Houston Comets, one of the WNBA perennially strong teams will disband. The WNBA took over ownership part way through last season. It's a shame because this was was one of the original franchise and they won four consecutive championships.

Yeah right that was the though before the Cleveland Rockers disbanded also. WNBA probably has less than 5 years of shelf life left!

I know that at one point Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) were thinking of adding an WNBA team to go with the Toronto Raptors but they didn't think that there was the interest here in Canada for a womens professional basketball team
