This is a no brainer.  Philly is such a massive sports town.  We absolutely should have a female team!  And the name should be the Philadelphia Bells.

Here are the details:

Based on their reporting, Philadelphia, Nashville, Oakland, Portland, San Francisco and Toronto have all been pinned down as the locations “most prepared and probable” to accept a new team.

On Philly chances:

“Sources say [comedian Wanda Sykes], who lives in Pennsylvania part-time, is a part of a group with interest in bringing an expansion team to Philadelphia. Sykes could not be reached for comment. Sources also have connected South Carolina coach Dawn Staley, a Philadelphia native, to the group.

“League sources believe Philadelphia has potential as an eventual expansion city, but it would likely mean the involvement of the 76ers — both financially and in terms of an arena. Though 76ers owners Josh Harris and David Blitzer have bought a number of franchises outside of the Sixers, anything linking the 76ers ownership group to a WNBA expansion franchise would be premature, a source said.” [The Athletic]
