1. Bayamon Vaqueros (Cowboys)
The team is under heavy debts and the current owner, Francisco Padilla, is trying to sell the team for $600k, the amount for which he originaly bought it, PLUS a little extra. Boxing promoter Peter Rivera is interested on buying the team, but for the sum of $440k. Peter Rivera says that the franchise has lost fans and sponsors thus lowering it's value in the last 3 seasons. Bayamon has not made the playoffs the last two years. This is a franchise that won 5 natinal tittle in a row and dominated the BSN during the 1990's.
2. San German A'S (Athletics)
After suffering financial deficit the past couple of seasons, San German, one of the original PR basketball franchises, is apparently not goign to participate this season. Let's hope they do, the A's have the best fans in the world plus a young team that showed sings of becoming a contender for the top spots in the Isle Division
3. Guayama Brujos (Wizards)
Guayama's homecourt is undergoing renovations making it imposible for the Brujos to play at their home this season. It shouldn't be a surprise to hear the announcement of a Guayama not playing this season, specialy after their catastrophic season last year in which they finished as the worst team performance wise after reaching the semi finals they year before.
4. Fajardo Cariduros (Hardfaces)
One of the most exciting teams of the last two seasons, for Fajardo reaching the semi finals two years in a row apparently was not enough to bring the fans to the games. Suffering heavy financial loses the current owner, Marcelino Garcia has decided to sell the franchise to the highest bidder. It all seemed as if it was going to be Carlos Arroyo the one to safe his hometown team, but negotiations failed after the owner decided to raise the amount to purchase the franchise. Now a group from Morovis, the place from where the Cariduros' franchise originaly came from, has put an offer on the table, but once again the owner has decided to raise the value even more. Anything can happen here.
"...quite possibly the greatest player of all time!"
At least they have options to survive, either by not playing for a year or two (which nobody wants) or by putting together cheaper rosters, since they don't have to fear a possible relegation. This could lead the way for younger players, on the bright side.
