California already has 4 teams... They'll be okay if they only have 3. Seattle has such great sports fans and any of u that follow the NFL should know what I'm talking about. The Seattle Seahawks probably have the best home crowd in the league. That town deserves a basketball team. Sorry ppl from Sacramento... Go cheer for another California team

Man, That's so sad that Sacramento won't have a team, their fans has one of the best fanbases in the NBA. I'm glad Seattle will have a team again but i wish the Kings would have came here where I'm at

No they do.

I remember the pre and during Mitch Richmond years.

They were awful but they'd sell out enough to be middle of the pack in the NBA, which was good for a small market area. For some reason it's been more so now that the fanbase has been lagging. Probably because of the Maloofs handling of the new arena and some backhanded statements towards the city.

I hope Rashard Lewis signs with them when he's an FA so I can wear my Lewis Sonics jersey again.

This is great news. I'm looking forward to seeing the Sonics play again. I always thought they were a great franchise with lots of history and a diehard fanbase but they got screwed in the worst way possible
