In theory, the Maloofs could move the team themselves, and then sell it.
Maloofs can't own the team and move it to seattle. Our MOU doesn't allow it. Too much collateral or something like that. The MOU is specific to a certain either 40 or 60% (i can't recall off hand) of how much the team can be used as collateral. Maloofs are way above that i believe.
