Karmanos evaluating offer to sell Hurricanes

Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr. is indeed considering an offer to sell the team.

Chuck Greenberg, a former co-owner of the Texas Rangers, is reported to be close to purchasing the club for approximately $500 million in a deal that would keep the team in North Carolina, according to Scott Soshnick of Bloomberg.

In response, the Hurricanes offered the following statement, via Chip Alexander of the News and Observer:

"Since an offer has been made to purchase the team, Mr. Karmanos intends to evaluate that offer and also will continue to evaluate his other options, including retaining his ownership of the team."

If the sale goes through, the team would not be on the move.

Waddell added he could not comment on the details of the reported sale price, the potential new ownership group, or how long the process could last.
