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.
You forgot to mention the loads of federal lawsuits that will be filed if the NBA effectively blocks this purchase and relocation when they effectively said they would allow this to happen as part of their settlement in court when the Sonics got hijacked.
