There hasn’t been a lot of news on the NBA front since Chris Hansen’s plans to build a new arena in SoDo were approved by the Seattle city council last month.
If the arena is built, what team is available? Sacramento? Could Seattle get an expansion franchise?
NBA commissioner David Stern was asked during a news conference in Milan if he thought Seattle would have a team within five years.
Stern said he was hopeful that within five years a new arena and new team would be in town.
