REPORT - ACC Tournament moving to Barclays Center

Posted: Updated:

GREENSBORO, NC (WECT) - According to a report posted to si.com Friday morning, the ACC is finalizing details to move its men's basketball tournament to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The report indicates the Conference is seeking a two-year deal that could begin as early as 2017.

The tournament is scheduled to be in Greensboro next year and in Washington, DC in 2016.

The Barclays Center is currently in a deal with the Atlantic 10 conference which is set to expire in 2017 which would mean two tournaments would be played there that season.

A move to New York has been widely speculated with the addition of Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Notre Dame this season.
