Pistons owner Gores talks one-on-one about downtown Detroit move

Gores, Duggan, President and CEO of Illitch holdings Chris Illitch and National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver announced the move at a press conference at Cass Technical High School in Detroit on Tuesday. The new facility is also within blocks of Comerica Park (MLB's Tigers) and Ford Field (NFL's Lions).

The official announcement was made at Cass Tech High School.

The move makes Detroit the first city with all four major sports organizations located in the core of the city. With the loss, Miami drops to 4-9 overall and 2-4 on the road, but they'll have plenty of opportunities to improve on that record as they play eight of their next 11 games on the road. You can go around the country, and there are cities where all four teams are somewhere in the border of their city. The arena bonds are to be paid off using property tax collections captured for downtown economic development.

The Pistons' move is still pending a series of approvals, including from the National Basketball Association, the Downtown Development Authority, and the City of Detroit.

China weakens yuan-dollar rate below 6.9 mark
The rebound in the Chinese yuan would likely be short-lived, traders said, noting the outlook for the U.S. dollar remains bullish. He has vowed to brand China a currency manipulator as part of measures to counter what he says are unfair trade practices.

"This is a historic day for our franchise, and for the City of Detroit", said franchise owner Tom Gores. No City of Detroit general funds will be used.

“My goal is that we should come to every city that wants us, especially when weve said many times at our board of governors meetings that when new buildings come on-line, they deserve to get All-Star Games, ” Silver said.

Tom Gores, owner of the National Basketball Association team that now plays in the Detroit suburb of Auburn Hills, said the move will include construction of a practice facility and corporate headquarters.

While it's likely that the vast majority of the upper structure of the Pistons and PS&E will be unchanged by the move, not necessarily so for lower-level employees - ushers, security, food service employees, and so on. "But there's a bigger picture here". Beginning in 2017-2018 season, the Pistons will call Little Caesars Arena, which is still under construction, home.

Magnitude 7.0 earthquake strikes off coast of El Salvador, USGS says
The natural disaster had a minimal effect in Costa Rica, where officials said it was felt slightly in the capital, San Jose. Emergency services in El Salvador said on Twitter there were no immediate reports of damage at a national level.

The Detroit Pistons have been playing in the Palace of Auburn Hills since. The franchise played at the suburban Pontiac Silverdome for a decade before moving to the Palace of Auburn Hills in 1988.

The Detroit Pistons won their championships in its first two seasons in Palace of Auburn Hills and again in 2004. If we can help Detroit revitalize — and it is coming back — that would be great.

The Pistons' move is subject to approval by the National Basketball Association, and is expected to be presented to the league's Board of Governors sometime after the first of the year.

Detroit returned to the playoffs last season for the first time since 2009.
