Virginia Commonwealth, Butler, and George Mason are expected to join the Atlantic 10 conference, according to CBSSports.com. If the deal were to go through, the schools would join for the 2013-14 season.

Butler is currently a member of the Horizon League, while George Mason and VCU are in the Colonial Athletic Association. The schools would replace Temple and Charlotte, who are defecting to the Big East and Sun Belt, respectively.
