Thanks for this.

I'd be interest to hear how receptive they are to the Sac group after the Seattle group goes first, thinking the league will be already wowed.

Well in regards to sac's group it all depends on the offer figure. If they don't come close to match Hansen's offer its a done deal that Kings are moving to seattle.

I'm guessing a large portion of the Season tickets will be purchased by businesses, I know it is for Baseball.

The Sonics had one of the longest sellout streaks in the 90's with the league's 2nd highest ticket price.

The Sonics will sell out, there is no doubt about it.

The meeting with Seattle should be done and the one with the Sacramento group should be on going now.

Would love to be a fly on the wall in that room.

Also.. I’m hearing that Maloofs are likely to be part of #Seattle presentation. There has been conflicting info on that all day. #NBAKings

If the money is the same what gain would the Maloof have in selling to Seattle?

All 4 of our ownership group is there (nordstrom brothers, balmer and hansen) with mcginn and King County exec Dow.

Not surprising maloofs will be part of Seattle's presentation they want to sell the team to them.

It comes down to who they want to sell to. NBA can not make Maloofs take sacramento's offer. IF NBA says no to seattle's offer Maloofs can keep the team.

If NBA wants maloofs out they'll approve the sale.

Are you sure the money is the same?

Some of the "whales" may have vested interests "beyond" owning the Kings. There are other reasons to suddenly go public with purportedly wanting to buy the franchise.
