WASHINGTON (AP) - The funeral for Washington Wizards owner Abe Pollin will be held Friday.

The team said Wednesday that the service will be held at the Washington Hebrew Congregation.

There will also be a public memorial service on Dec. 8 at Pollin's Verizon Center, the arena that helped revitalize a downtrodden area of the city.

Pollin died Tuesday at the age of 85. He bought his NBA franchise in 1964 and was the league's longest-tenured owner.

President Barack Obama issued a statement paying tribute to Pollin, saying that Pollin "believed in Washington, D.C., when many others didn't."
