BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -A person familiar with a Pennsylvania billionaire's interest to buy the Buffalo Sabres has told The Associated Press that team owner Tom Golisano has not yet made up his mind on whether to sell the NHL franchise.
The person confirmed that Terry Pegula is a candidate to buy the Sabres, and added that Golisano is giving the offer "serious consideration" but has not yet made a decision. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Wednesday because the person is not authorized to discuss negotiations.
Golisano has declined comment since reports surfaced this week of Pegula's bid to buy the Sabres.
Pegula could not be reached for comment.
