- OKC jacks Sonics
- Seattle billioniares unite to jack away some other NBA team
- S.B.'s buy land south of Safeco Field, in an area already zoned for stadiums, large enough for NBA/NHL arena
- Arena is approved by city and county
- S.B.'s go shopping for NBA team
- owners of Sacramento NBA team agree to sell team to S.B.'s
Now waiting to see if NBA approves the sale to the S.B.'s in a few weeks. If that happens, arena gets built, NBA team moves to Key Arena for a years, and possibly an NHL team comes too. The PR mouthpiece for the S.B.'s have been going out of their way to promote the hockey aspects of the arena and make it clear the NHL is part of the end goal.
