Jay Shah, reportedly, has approved the deal sent to affiliated units and it is now to see what the meeting regarding this will transpire.
It is also said that the existing franchises are against the addition of two new franchises as they will have less time to prepare for the mega-auction. Notably, if the two new teams will be added, there will be no mini-auction.
