Though with no sports anchor outsiders may not go for it. And if we head toward a recession/depression, chances even lower. Telcom likely to be less impacted by economic downturn so Tmobile might end up keeping the contract and add it to their Sprint rebranding efforts over time. As Fang mentioned, they might keep it named Sprint Center for as long as Sprint branding exists.
The upper management at SC have been told it will be changing but that was before all this Covid-19 stuff. Who knows with all this changing up the game. From what I’ve read, the sprint name won’t stay around at all, so I don’t see them handing over that yearly check for no reason. Of course you also have to factor in the hard cost of doing the flip.

Sprint brand could be retired as early as this year. Name change coming sooner rather than later it seems
