Seattle, which had its NBA team ripped away after the 2007-08 season, may be getting a second chance at getting a team again. Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski just tweeted this:
The Maloofs are finalizing an agreement to sell the Sacramento Kings to the Hansen-Ballmer led Seattle group, sources tell Yahoo! Sports.

Seattle was regarded as having one of the best fan bases in the league, and the city has never forgiven Clay Bennett for moving the team to Oklahoma City to become the Thunder. Sacramento Kings’ owners, the Maloof brothers, had been trying to relocate the team to Virginia, but that fell apart. It’s a surprise that the Maloofs would sell the team, but I guess they’re over it.
