BREAKING: Source tells me press conference scheduled at
#SeattleCity Hall to announce deal on new sports arena complex...
Seattle could be one step closer to bringing a the NHL or the NBA back to the city.
KING 5 reports that a press conference is scheduled for Thursday at City Hall, and they expect the announcement to be about a deal between the city and San Francisco developer Christopher Hansen.
Hansen bought just over three acres in Seattle's SoDo neighborhood in December for just over $21 million, says KING 5.
The Seattle Times talked to Hansen on Tuesday, and were told that he was meeting with Seattle City Council members on Wednesday and was "very close to announcing an offer with the city."
Even if plans for an arena are announced on Thursday, it is still uncertain who would play there. Seattle's hopes of landing the Sacramento Kings took a minor setback when an unanimous vote from the Sacramento City Council authorized detailed talks that would raise nearly half of the $387 million for a new sports and entertainment arena.
Wow. Big step here.
