Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis is considering a future move for the Wizards and the Capitals out of their current Verizon Center location. Over the past few months, Leonsis has added an Arena Football League team, an “e-sports” franchise, and a new streaming network to his portfolio along with continuing to lead the ownership group that controls the Wizards, Mystics, and Verizon Center. He is also now a part-owner of CSN Mid-Atlantic, the local TV channel that covers his teams.
Leonsis made a trip to the Washington Post building Wednesday and spoke to reporters about the possible move for the Wizards and the Capitals out of their current location.
“My inclination right now would be — it’s pretty awesome where we are. And I love what’s happened to [downtown] D.C.,” Leonsis said to Washington Post reporters. “But I don’t know what’s going to happen five, six, seven years from now…I will be a free agent. I mean, that hasn’t been lost on me.”
