ESPN: New NBA Team in Newark Highly Unlikely

In the latest poll of its expert class, ESPN reports on which cities are most likely to get an NBA franchise in the next decade. Seattle gets 14 votes out of 25 cast. Las Vegas is next with nine. Way down the list along with Moscow and Mexico City is Newark. In spite of its new arena, ESPN writes: "City couldn't even keep its Starbucks. A third NBA franchise in the metro area seems too much".
