The Warriors are reportedly expecting a momentous occasion in early 2017.
Golden State anticipates breaking ground on its new San Francisco arena next spring, according to Ron Leuty of the San Francisco Business Times.
On Monday, San Francisco Superior Court Judge Garrett Wong ruled in favor of the Warriors in a lawsuit filed by the Mission Bay Alliance -- the group opposing the proposed $1 billion development.
Warriors President Rick Welts told Leuty that the franchise will begin moving employees to a Mission Bay sales center sometime in August.
As Leuty explains, the Mission Bay Alliance "has until Monday to appeal the decision by San Francisco Superior Court Judge Garrett Wong. If an appeal is filed -- and there are signs that the alliance will continue its fight -- a final decision would come this fall."
If the Warriors are able to break ground when expected, the arena would open in time for the 2019-20 NBA season.
