The Golden State Warriors are currently in the process of finding an area to build their new, state of the art arena that will house the franchise for years to come. Oracle Arena has a lot of historical value to the Warriors and their fans, but the simple fact is that it's outdated and more money can be made elsewhere.
Team owners had originally been looking at quite a few areas around the Bay Area, but it appears that the land down by the piers is now out. Here is the latest from Damon Bruce of KNBR Radio:
Breaking News: A very good source has told me #warriors move to Piers 30/32 is already dead. Team will look to build closer to AT&T Park.— Damon Bruce (@DamonBruce) June 8, 2012
The Giants have been very successful at AT&T Park and transportation issues aren't too bad given the number of fans in attendance each night, so this does seem like a legitimate fit. There is still tons of planning left to be done, but it is good to see the Warriors narrowing down their options.
