The NHL Phoenix case frames this nicely. The NBA retains the right to approve new owners. The Maloofs own the rights to Sacramento, not Seattle. What the Maloofs could do, possibly, assuming they had an arena to go to, would be to move their team themselves, a la Davis.

Since Hansen is working on a deal to build an arena, it's really not possible for the Maloofs to move there and certainly not any time soon.
