Golden State Warriors expected to be up for sale in the near future

Warriors owner Chris Cohan is believed to be seriously considering selling his 80% stake in the franchise in the next year or two, according to the sources. (He took control of the franchise in January 1995.)

In fact, one knowledgeable source said it’s “highly likely” that Cohan will sell most or all of his controlling interest in the team, possibly pulling back only if the current recession unexpectedly continues through 2011 and Cohan can’t get the price he wants.

Warriors fans are not exactly fond of Cohan, who's only gotten the team to one playoff appearance in 14 years. So needless to say, this would be a bigger move than possibly trading for Amar'e Stoudemire.
