Report: The Detroit Shock are moving to Tulsa

The bad news for Detroit sports fans is that it looks like the much-plagued city is losing a professional team.

The good news is that it’s far and away the least popular one: the WNBA’s Shock.

A team spokesman told the Associated Press that the three-time league champions are moving to Tulsa, Okla.

This comes at the end of another year of weak attendance at the Palace of Auburn Hills, where a curtain was used to hide an upper deck that many times was completely empty.

A couple of lead investors leading the move-to-Tulsa movement announced that former Arkansas Razorbacks coach Nolan Richardson will serve as the franchise’s coach and general manager.
