It wasn't a good deal, especially with the Maloof's financial situation at the time.
Yes, they can. It's their league and they have the right to decide who can be owners of their franchises in their league. Chances are that won't be tested though.
No Sacramento group will offer a Seattle valuation figure for a team in Sacramento. The NBA will not kill a more valuable deal. For one it will force Seattle or the state of Washington to sue the NBA on anti-trust grounds.
Seattle never got an arena deal struck and had their owner sell to someone local to give a try.
Seattle never had a chance. Schultz sold the team in the dead of night to the Okies. ZERO Seattle groups had a chance to step in and buy the team. Sacramento had a chance, Seattle never had one.
