Sports Kings Radio’s Rob Calloway was on hand yesterday as California developer and pizza chain owner Alex Meruelo vowed to do everything he can to bring a championship to Atlanta if his deal to become the majority owner of the Hawks is approved by the NBA.
The 48-year-old will have controlling interest of more than 50 percent of the Hawks, who will remain in Atlanta. The deal also includes operating rights to Philips Arena.
If the deal is approved Meruelo will become the NBA’s first Hispanic team owner.
