Confirmed: Detroit Shock moving to Tulsa

This would be breaking news. Mel just called me with confirmation from his sources, who are quite close to all of this, that the WNBA's Detroit Shock are moving to Tulsa, Oklahoma. This confirmation is independent of the AP's reporting from this morning, at least in that Mel's sources told him directly.

The Shock won the WNBA title in 1998, its first season as a franchise, and also won in 2003, 2006 and 2008. According to the AP's report, former Arkansas men's basketball coach Nolan Richardson will be the Shock's new coach and general manager.
