Here is a transcript of the informative interview in which Wang and his associates attempted to convey their sense of urgency regarding progress of the approval process with the Town of Hempstead and other agencies:
HAVE ANY LOCAL INVESTORS SHOWN INTEREST IN PURCHASING THE TEAM?
WANG: No. We never solicited, nor did anyone come to us and say, 'Hey.' I don't think anyone anticipates that it is for sale, and it isn't for sale. I think if I made a statement, 'It's for sale,' we would have interest locally. We know we have interest outside local interests, but we have not heard from anyone here. Seriously, we have not had interest [locally]. If there's interest, we would listen, I'm sure. Like anybody else, we would be polite and civil, but I'm not looking to sell the team.
WHAT ABOUT QUEENS INTEREST AT PROPOSED WILLETS POINT CONVENTION CENTER?
WANG: We never spoke to them.
WHAT ABOUT BRUCE RATNER AND HIS ATLANTIC YARD PROJECT?
WANG: I know Bruce Ratner, but he's got his issues to deal with. We're not contemplating anything there.
Okay then. Looks like someone made a big story out of nothing.
