Seattle, looks like you might be getting a basketball team

By selling their controlling interest in the Sacramento Kings for $340 million, the Maloofs today triggered a lengthy review process by the NBA that puts the onus on Sacramento officials to come up with a counter offer to keep the team in town.

This morning, the Maloof family announced that it had signed a binding agreement to sell the team to a Seattle investment group led by hedge fund manager Chris Hansen. In a brief statement, the Kings owners expressed appreciation for Sacramento fans, but offered no details on the proposed move to Seattle.

"We have always appreciated and treasured our ownership of the Kings and have had a great admiration for the fans and our team members," Gavin Maloof said in a prepared statement. "We would also like to thank Chris Hansen for his professionalism during our negotiation. Chris will be a great steward for the franchise."

Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson had not commented on the news as of mid-morning. He has been working to assemble a rival ownership group that could buy the team and keep it here.

Should lighten the load on local probation officers and rape counselors.

Good riddance to them.

Can the local dope dealers apply for supplemental unemployment or other benefits due to the loss of revenue from the players?

Should they be the Sonics? Or a new name?

The Urban Hipsters?

The Tall Machiattos?
