San Diego Sails

The San Diego Sails were the renamed San Diego Conquistadors, the American Basketball Association's only expansion franchise, joining the league in 1972. The name change came after original owner, Leonard Bloom, sold the team in 1975 to Frank Goldberg. The team folded a dozen games into the 1975 season when Goldberg discovered San Diego would not be part of a proposed merger with the National Basketball Association.
