MLS not in Wilpons' immediate future

By Adam Rubin

While Fred Wilpon and family have expressed interest in owning a Major League Soccer expansion team in New York, league commissioner Don Garber told Brian Lewis of the Post that is not on the horizon.

"We have not had much contact with the Wilpon family," Garber told Lewis. "I respect the challenges they’ve been going through. ... I'm glad they seem to be coming out on the positive end of this process, and when it’s through we’ll re-engage with them."
