With owners facing a difficult choice between a move to Seattle or the team staying put in Sacramento, NBA Commissioner David Stern said Wednesday the expected vote in two weeks may be delayed.
Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn has issued a statement late Monday night saying he welcomes the news that the Seattle City Council has decided to support bringing basketball back to Seattle.
The chances of Seattle acquiring an NBA team in the near future may have just gotten slim. Reports have surfaced saying the Sacramento Kings could be moving to Virginia Beach, Virginia. According to an article posted on the website of Norfolk-based Hampton Roads Business Journal, Virginia Beach officials and the Maloof family are expected to announce the move on August 29.
