The NY Islanders may be relocating.
Some local officials privately said they could see Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov, who also owns 45 percent of the Barclays Center, potentially acquiring the Islanders to add 44-60 dates per year to help fill the arena.
A Prokhorov spokeswoman, however, said the Russian billionaire “has no interest in buying another sports team at this time.”
The arena currently is projected to host about 200 events annually, including Nets games.
Queens, Kansas City, Mo., Suffolk County and Canada have also been rumored as potential landing spots for the Islanders.
