The Maloofs don't need to remind anyone that they control the team. The NBA can not force them to sell if they reject the Seattle offer. It seems very odd that they're now asking for a binding back-up bid. IMO this is a signal that the Maloofs are willing to sell the team to either party following the outcome of the NBA meeting.

And why would the NBA award the team to Seattle now if there's a matching offer from Sacramento and an arena pledge? Not feeling too good about this right now......
Not spin just my first reaction. If NBA rejects Hansen that puts the Maloofs in a very bad spot and could get lowballed. I think they must have a good idea what the Sacramento offer is which forced their hard stand. Just an opinion.
