Simple facts.... the NBA likes the Hansen's, don't seem at all enamored with Sacramento, and they pretty evidently want to go back to Seattle sooner rather than later. Sucks for Sacramento, but they're getting the raw end of the deal here just as Seattle got screwed over a few years back.
Stern said himself that losing Sacramento would be terrible. Why would he allow them to plan for counteroffers with both the Anaheim and proposed Seattle deals?

He isn't out to screw Sacramento. He couldn't care less about anything other than profit for the league, and whoever has the better deal for the league will win.
