Schultz had no more rights to the Sonics once he sold them to Bennett, that's why that haphazard attempt went nowhere once Schultz found out that was Bennett's intent.
The NBA unofficially blocked the Kings' first attempt to relocate to Anaheim. When I said Seattle did the same thing, I'm speaking of filing lawsuit because of the move. Pretending like a lawsuit is going to make the NBA so mad to blacklist a city from a franchise coming back if it works for them is patently absurd.
