Officials at the Port of San Francisco denied knowledge of such a deal earlier this month and, again, today. Warriors president Rick Welts did not return SF Weekly's calls. Team spokesman P.J. Johnston last week refused to confirm or deny the transaction, and hasn't returned calls today. Calls to the mayor's office have, thus far, gone unanswered. 

Well-placed sources within the city, however, said that the team could be announcing its plans as soon as Tuesday.
