Gonna be hard to attract an interested party when Alexander holds all the cards and has no interest in owning a team. It's like Paul Allen and Portland, except Allen did show interest once upon a time (when Mario Lemieux was awarded ownership of the Penguins instead of Allen he dropped out of the NHL picture entirely).

It's possible, and Houston does have everything else in place...but an owner is the most important aspect and there just isn't anyone. They've been way too quiet during these past few years for me to imagine someone just coming out of the blue all-of-a-sudden.

It may happen down the road, expansion over relocation, but I think there's other cities that'll top Houston just because of interest shown to this point. If the league does expand in a few years I fully expect it to be Quebec and Seattle.
