The deal will sell the Kings for approximately $500 million, with theSeattle group seeking relocation to Key Arena for the 2013-'14 season.

The Seattle group's plans, with support of the NBA, is to play two seasons in Key Arena before moving into a new Seattle arena, sources say.

Details

No agreement signed, but one source describes deal as "1st and goal at 1." Maloofs history of changing course late still makes many uneasy.

The Maloofs are expected to keep an extremely small percentage of team, but will have no real input or say in franchise, sources say.

Happy to hear Seattle will be getting a new team. I'm assuming they'll be called the Supersonics again. Isn't a fan on here from Seattle or Canada that roots for the Lakers? He can jump that sinking ship, and go support the Supersonics. Lol, I kid I kid

Having the Supersonics back in the league would be great for the NBA.

Report is that they would ask for the Super Sonics name back. Also that the deal is being finalized right now. Should be announced in the next couple of days if everything goes well.

Good for Seattle but this sucks for Sacramento, they get stuck with terrible owners and now lose their team. The kings used to have awesome fans back in the early 2000s, I remember that was one of the loudest arenas when I was growing up

They don't need to ask for the name back, in the sale to Bennett, the city kept the name, uniforms, and colors, only thing they won't keep is the history. That being said, THANK YOU Chris Hansen. Cannot wait to watch some Sonics basketball! Was sick rooting on the Thunder, even though I will always love KD

won't happen...didn't cheer for the Grizzlies when they were in Vancouver, don't cheer for the Raptors in Toronto! I don't change teams and I don't cheer for teams based on where they are from! Happy for Seattle if they make this happen...I think it's not written in stone just yet. It does make for a fun Saturday night on a Seahawks weekend to go watch some basketball. I hope they get an NHL team for the same reason!

    • Between Hurd and Dobbs Tennessee had the two most overrated recruits in college football. Kamara was so much better than Hurd
    • He's got the height at 6'4". But I'm looking at arm length and wingspan and looking at the other DEs we've have targeted recently (Hardy, Alexander, Horton, Ealy, Miley, Edwards, Delaire). Delaire is the only one under 34" arms and he seems more like a pass rush specialist. 
    • I see what your saying and I hope that's not the case. I personally don't see KB as a player that's going to lead the league in catches or yards. I see him not as the stereotypical receiver but as a player that can be known as the one who makes the really tough, clutch catches. The dangerous red zone target that a defense has to key on but will still be deficult to stop. The guy that makes the hard fought 1st down catch on 3rd and long when we really need it late in the game. Dependable.  I believe he has the potential to be that guy. I hope at least.
