Chris Hansen Launches Priority Waitlist For Tickets To Seattle NBA Team

Hedge fund manager Chris Hansen, who is leading the effort to bring the Sonics back to Seattle by relocating the NBA Kings, yesterday announced he is “launching a priority waitlist for future tickets for a team,” according to Bob Condotta of the SEATTLE TIMES. The waitlist “will go live on SonicsArena.com at 10 a.m. Thursday.” While it was not acknowledged by Hansen, it is "possible the move was timed to counter what has been a public-relations barrage from Sacramento forces in recent weeks aimed at keeping the Kings.” Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson has “assembled an ownership group to make an alternate offer to buy the team and build a new arena.” Johnson's hope is “the package will be enough to compel the NBA to turn down the Seattle offer and keep the team in Sacramento” (SEATTLE TIMES, 3/12).
