The Sacramento Kings are in a bit of trouble. Owners, the Maloof brothers, have considered moving the team, and now it seems they are willing to sell the Kings. After possibly moving the Kings to Anaheim in 2011, the Maloof brothers are now rumored to be in discussions with a group of investors from Seattle to sell the franchise from California’s capitol city and have it moved north to the Emerald City.
The city of Seattle has already approved a deal for a new arena, so the Seattle seems to be willing to welcome back an NBA franchise back after losing the Seattle Supersonics to Oklahoma City. If the Kings move to Seattle, will the team retain the name “Kings” return to the name “Supersonics”, or take on a completely new name? That question remains to be seen, but the Atlanta Thrashers recently moved from Atlanta to Winnipeg and instead of retaining the name Thrashers, the franchise took on the name of the most recent NHL franchise in Winnipeg, the Jets. No matter what happens, the people of Seattle should be very excited about a return of the NBA.
