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!

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
