The Sports & Exhibition Authority of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County has hired a consulting firm to evaluate Pittsburgh as a potential home for an NBA or WNBA team. 

State Sen. Wayne Fontana, who is on the board of the Sports & Exhibition Authority, told KDKA-TV on Wednesday that it has hired CAA ICON to "assist in the evaluation of Pittsburgh as a potential home for an NBA and/or WNBA team." 

Members of the Sports and Exhibition Authority said now is the time to see if the city is viable for another professional sports team. 

"I would love to see it, but I don't know if it will get the support here," basketball fan Ryan Austin told KDKA-TV on Thursday.

Feedback like this is what a new survey floating around town is looking to find. The survey is being sent out by the PPG Paints Arena. It asks about interests in sports in the area and if you would support an NBA or WNBA team with each league looking to expand into new markets.
