Baker Weighs in on New York Liberty Sale in The Deal

November 15, 2017

A story in the November 15, 2017, issue of The Deal quotes partner Charles Baker about Madison Square Garden Co.’s decision to sell the Women’s National Basketball Association franchise the New York Liberty.

“Given escalating NBA team values and the excitement around both the G League and NBA 2K [eSports] league, it seems the Liberty, particularly given their New York market, would be an interesting opportunity,” Baker told The Deal.

Baker co-chairs O’Melveny’s Sports Industry Group. His corporate practice encompasses mergers and acquisitions, private equity, and venture capital transactions, with a core focus in the sports, media, and consumer sectors.
