The State of WA was not involved with that settlement.

If the NBA blocks the Hansen deal without the promise of an expansion team, I sure hope the city looks back at that deal and consider any legal action they can as well. We did the NBA a favor, not vice versa, I doubt the city is forbidden to sue.

We the taxpayers built an arena under the expectations of the NBA being played in Seattle until at least 2010; the NBA broke that agreement.
