It's conditional on upgrading US Bank Arena (estimated to cost $200 million). The owner of the arena (a large corporation based in L.A.) has been begging the city for a handout for almost a decade, and the answer has consistently been "no."

I've never heard of the NCAA making a conditional award of a tournament site before. Has anyone else?

In a way, the awards of tournament sites to venues that haven't been completed - like Chase Center in San Francisco, for which they only broke ground in January - are conditional on the building being open for business before that year's tournament rolls around.
