NBA Kings Taking Ticket Renewal Calls At "Frenzied Pace"; Hansen Not Done In Seattle
Published May 21, 2013
NOT DONE YET: Former Kings bidder Chris Hansen said that he was "disappointed in the league's decision and vowed continued dedication to 'bringing the NBA back to Seattle.'" Hansen said that the possibility of the NBA expanding to Seattle is "unclear." In Seattle, Percy Allen notes Hansen gave "no specifics on his next step while noting the process is difficult and requires patience." Hansen still has a five-year "memorandum of understanding with the city of Seattle on a financing plan for a multipurpose sports arena in the Sodo neighborhood, just south of Safeco Field." However, construction "cannot begin until he secures an NBA team" (SEATTLE TIMES, 5/21).
