New Red Claws Arena?

With the Red Claws selling out every home game, it appears they have already outgrown the Portland Expo.  Speculation is that they have plans to build on Thompson's Point.
The Forecaster:  "Maine Red Claws President Jon Jennings, meanwhile, would neither confirm nor deny persistent rumors that the NBA D-League team is interested in the property for construction of a new arena.

'I have no comment on that, as of now,' Jennings said last week.

Jennings said the team is seeing even greater demand for tickets this year than it did in its debut season a year ago, including a 'dramatic increase' in group ticket sales. The Red Claws sold out all 24 home games last year."
