The much speculated sale of the struggling Sacramento Kings could be announced as early as tomorrow.

The new Sonics would play in the Key for 2 years while a new arena is being built.

This also would push for an NHL team to relocate to Seattle as it will be built to be state of the art for both leagues

Its all the slimeball Bennett's fault, he never had any intention of keeping the team in Seattle. His demands for an arena in Seattle were rediculous

F.Y.I. I'm a blazers fan, but I'd love an NHL team to come to washington

Certainly going to be our #1 defensemen. Give him a couple more years to improve his game and he'll be our new and improved version of Matthias Ohlund in no time

Updated, deal has been confirmed, just waiting on league approval

Looking at the roster, a lot of young and talented guys. Aaron Brooks is from Seattle, he must be pumped. Evans and Cousins as guys to build around

Tyreke Evans needs to go, they need to make some big moves if they want the team to be successful.

If this is true I will be so very excited!!! Grew up watching the Sonics and had many great moments, miss them dearly, it's like my heart has been ripped open. Many of you won't understand as most Canadians I know don't like basketball but imagine the NHL taking the Canucks and moving them elsewhere. Exactly.

I feel so bad for Seattle fans after seeing how quickly OKC turned so dominant, losing a team like that is so shtty.


Lets go Sonics 2.0!

I'm from Winnipeg, and let me tell you something. If you love the jersey, and you love the team, it doesn't matter what their history is. If anything, you should view this new team with a refreshed light. Instead of putting money in the s**tbag owners pocket, you're giving it to someone who went and acquired something for your city. They're still your team, and you should embrace them. Relocation happens all the time. Something for good, sound economic reasons (Winnipeg) and some because the dirty owners figure they might make enough extra in another city to afford another ivory bidet, or whatever the incredibly wealthy buy to show others than they're men of considerable means (like the North Stars). But if Seattle is a good sports city, like Minneapolis/St. Paul is, and the passions there, what does it matter their origins?

That's a very good way to look at way, my perspective on the new looks sonics has just changed and I'm very excited to watch ex rookie of the year tyreke evans and also demarcus cousins. Sacramento is a team with lots of young talent. Id assume tickets would be pretty cheap too

Probably not, some of the money raised for the arena is going to come from ticket sales, Also supply<<<<demand
