NBA Rumor: Maloof’s Have Agreed to Sell Kings to Seattle Investor Chris Hansen

Anklesnap January 9, 2013 Rumors 2 Comments

Reports started circulating on twitter last night that the owners of the Sacramento Kings have sold the franchise to Seattle investor Chris Hansen.

There have been rumors for the better part of a year that the Maloof’s might sell the organization and/or move them to another city. There have been many locations discussed, including Virginia Beach, Las Vegas, Seattle, and even some talk of whether the Kings could mark the first NBA team overseas. But according to rumors the team may very well be landing in Seattle.

Seattle fans have been rabid about wanting an NBA franchise back in town since the Sonics were moved to Oklahoma City. At this point they are just rumors, but everyone should perk up and keep their eye on the situation over the next couple of weeks to see if this comes to fruition.

Seattle reporter Chris Daniels had this to say on twitter late last night:

So the big question becomes, if the team is moved to Seattle, are they going to be the Kings or the Sonics?

    That’s not a big question at all. The fans in Seattle will accept nothing less than “SuperSonics”. The Kings name can go back to Kansas City where it belongs for future consideration.

      Be exciting to see the ‘Sonics’ back on the big board.
