What I'm saying is, a relocation fee would dramatically increase the total cost of ownership. Jamison's group may have the funding and the will to operate the team in Glendale, but it doesn't necessarily follow that they have the money or the inclination to buy and relocate. Perhaps one or more of his partners would prefer to opt out entirely rather than deal with relocation costs. Or there may be investors who would pull out if the lease is held up again, regardless of the reason.
Come to think of it, you could argue that it would be irresponsible for Jamison to sign anything right now.
