Do you want owners telling other owners who they can and can't sell to especially when comes to them wanting to sell their team themselves at some point? Seattle will never get a team if the league says no if there always is a local offer that matches it.
Sacramento doesn't even have an arena plan yet and Friday is the deadline.
