After a whirlwind of information swirled around on Tuesday concerning the fates of the Cosmos and the NASL, information slowed down considerably, but did not drop off entirely on Wednesday. But very little revolved around the New York Cosmos.
Empire of Soccer reported a few items, including a follow-up on the Carlos Slim rumor. While sources continue to insist the Mexican billionaire has a role with the Cosmos going forward, the club itself will not confirm nor deny if this is the case.
Meanwhile, Vice Chairman Jeremy Wilkins represented the club in Atlanta while Seamus O’Brien reportedly met with potential investors in New York.
Brian Quarstad of FiftyFive.One shared information on four NASL clubs that might be looking at USL.
Source also informed me that San Francisco, Puerto Rico, Raleigh and Jacksonville all have interest in joining USL subject to negotiations.

The reference to Raleigh was meant to be Cary, for the RailHawks.
First Coast News followed up with the Jacksonville Armada, who told them they would not make statements about the future until an announcement came from the NASL.
Nipun Chopra had insight on one NASL team whose fate seemed murky, at best, as it entered the offseason.
Was told Rayo OKC representatives are not at BOG meeting
(I am trying to give news time so reputable news people can tweet it 1st) #NASL

News OK not only confirmed the lack of a presence at the meetings by the OKC side, but also shared that all players had been released from their contracts.
Rumors persist that the club may yet look to relocate, but only time will tell if this still happens.
The wait continues.
