Executive Constantine on recommendation by NBA committee to deny the sale of franchise to Hansen group

Monday, April 29, 2013

King County Executive Dow Constantine commented on this afternoon’s committee decision to deny the sale of the Sacramento Kings basketball team to Seattle:

“I’m disappointed, but undeterred in our quest to bring NBA basketball back to the Pacific Northwest. Today’s decision doesn’t mean this effort is over. 
"From what I saw at the presentation in New York, Chris Hansen and his team have made the superior offer and the best pure business case for the NBA to return to Seattle. We have a documented fan and business base ready to step forward when the time comes. We are patient, but determined. 
"I look forward to continuing our work with the Hansen group to return NBA basketball to the major media market and loyal fans of Seattle, King County, and Washington State.”
