San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee Calls For Warriors' Return

Is there a return home in the future for the Golden State Warriors?

Well, it's certain that home is now calling.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco mayor Ed Lee is calling for the Warriors to return to San Fran "in time for the 2017 NBA season."

In a letter signed by all 11 city supervisors, among others, Lee said he is willing to work with the team to get the move done. Talks have already been in the works for turning Piers 30-32 into a waterfront arena paid for by private financing - just like the Giants and their stadium. The letter was sent a few days after Lee met with new Warriors owner Peter Gruber in Los Angeles.

The Warriors haven't played in San Francisco since 1971 and the 1970-71 season was the last time they were referred to as the San Francisco Warriors.
