That's my guess, anyway.

Okay, thanks, D. I'm just trying to figure out why anti-trust is coming up in the context of this discussion. Hansen wants an NBA team in Seattle. I think he is willing to work with the NBA to make that happen, along the lines of Chipman in Winnipeg. My sense is that there's nothing overly contentious about it. In theory, the Maloofs could move the team themselves, and then sell it.
