http://sports.yahoo.com/news/maloofs-nearing-deal-to-sell-kings-to-gro up-that-plans-to-relocate-franchise-to-seattle-190254566.html Yahoo Sports is reporting today that the Maloof family are finalizing an agreement to sell the Kings to a Seattle-based group led by investor Chris Hansen and Microsoft exec Steve Ballmer for $500 million. If approved by the NBA, the Kings would move to Seattle starting next season, and would play at KeyArena until the newly-planned arena is finished by 2015. The Kings would also assume the Supersonics nickname, and likely, its records and history. While it's great that Seattle is back in the NBA, another great NBA town loses its team, in Sacramento.

Although I'm happy that basketball might be back in Seattle I'm disappointed that players like C-Webb are no longer going to have rafters for their jerseys.

So Seattle fans celebrate a long-time basketball town losing a basketball team. How ironic.

I'm the Supersonics are back. The city of Seattle is a great bball town and the key arena had a great atmosphere. Also Cali had too many teams, this could boost our fanbase in North Cali, we could steal some of their fans, seeing that a lot of their fans would not cheer for their Nor Cali rival the Warriors or their early 2000's rival Fakers.

The biggest beneficary of the Kings' move will be the Warriors, especially from a TV rights standpoint. Unless you have NBA League Pass, Warriors games can't be seen in Sacramento, and Kings games can't be seen in the Bay Area. With the Kings gone from Sacramento, when the Warriors' contract with Comcast Sports is up, whenever it does, it can re-negoiate a bigger rights fee.

Most will probably go into hiding and appear next time a Pau type trade occurs. Part of me feels Kevin Love might end up there. Don't see him staying in Minnesota with an owner who says he not a star b/c he didn't lead them to the playoffs.

What could they possibly send Minnesota for Love that Minny would want? Keep in mind Marco Jaric is not on the Lakers.
