There are discussions in Seattle. However, but it's been done before, where a market from one of the big 4 leagues, started in a town, with discussions still ongoing, but not final, shovel in the ground, build and definite open date with a new arena/stadium and it still worked (ie, the new arena plans were FINALIZED after the team relocated or started).
Tampa Bay in the NHL and the Nationals in MLB are 2 somewhat recent examples of this...
