We are back with Next Level, our WNBA podcast here at The Next, hosted by Brendon Kleen.

In this episode, we debrief with Bailey Johnson, our Atlanta Dream beat reporter and an associate editor here at The Next, on the purchase of the franchise by New England real estate private equity duo Larry Gottesdiener and Suzanne Abair, plus the inclusion of Renee Montgomery in the group.

What does it mean when people around the Dream say the situation was “untenable?” Is the Kelly Loeffler saga a one-off or a sign of things to come between WNBA players and other stakeholders? And what should we expect of Atlanta on the court in 2021?
