    What many believed to be a foregone conclusion becomes an actuality as the Sonics and the city of Seattle reach a settlement in their court case in which the club will relocate to Oklahoma City in time for the ’08-09 NBA season. Clay Bennett and the rest of the Sonics ownership group will pay Seattle as much as $75M to break the final two years of the team’s KeyArena lease. The mood in the Sooner State is predictably joyous, and the team plans to begin moving to Bricktown immediately. Meanwhile, as part of the agreement, the Sonics name and all team marks will stay with Seattle, and Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels indicates the NBA is “committed to helping us secure a future team.” But the SEATTLE TIMES’ Steve Kelley writes pro basketball in the city is “dead." One thing to keep in mind in all this -- former Sonics Owner Howard Schultz still has a pending lawsuit seeking to rescind his sale of the team.
