Published May 16, 2013
Stern said that there were "no promises made to the Seattle group about a team in the future." But he and NBA Deputy Commissioner & COO Adam Silver "indicated expansion could be an option later, seeming to soften their previous stance that adding teams was not in the cards." Silver said that the league "might take a more serious look at expansion after its current national TV contracts expire" following the '15-16 season (SEATTLE TIMES, 5/16).
