Angry creditors argued Thursday that other interested buyers would not have time to secure financing and suggested a Sept. 30 auction.
The starting bid will be from the group led by Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan and sports attorney Chuck Greenberg. Major League Baseball endorsed the Ryan-Greenberg group after it was selected in the original bidding process last year, but the $575 million deal has been stalled by creditors.
Cuban's attorney said his client has been approved by MLB and hopes to submit a bid.
