Things are looking good for Seattle owners to set up a new arena. The big question is whether they can find the NBA team to become tenants in their new building.
For those hoping for a new team to head Seattle's way, good news might have come via the misfortune of another franchise. The Sacramento Kings have stalled in their arena plans, making their hold on the city even more tenuous.

It's unlikely that the Kings have their eyes up on the North, but the people behind the current Seattle arena plan could be willing to buy the team from the Maloofs at the right price. The NBA seems to be trying to keep the Kings from leaving Sacramento, but the longer no new arena gets built, the tougher that task becomes, and the more promising Seattle looks in trying to acquire them.
