At the time, Lacob said the team would explore eventually moving the team to the Bay Area.The Wizards will play in Bismarck for the 2011-12 season.A couple of weeks ago, Lacob did the same kind of thing for Warriors season-ticket holders. Approximately 3,000 showed up at Oracle Arena to hear Lacob, co-owner Peter Guber, West and coach Mark Jackson talk about the Warriors.
