Well, today's the day. Both Seattle and Sacramento will make their presentations to the NBA relocation/finance committees.
In late-breaking news, the shares of Kings stock thought to have been purchased by Chris Hansen of Seattle have had a matching offer made by a current minority owner. Dave Lucchetti, who owns only 1% of the team, will now acquire the 7% previously owned By Bob Cook, who was forced to surrender his shares to a bankruptcy court for sale. Lucchetti will join the forces of Ron Burkle, Mark Mastrov, Vivek Randadive and Paul Jacobs. This leaves open the opportunity for Lucchetti to exercise his Right of First Refusal for the purchase of the team by simply matching the Hansen offer. It would, if allowed, stop Hansen from proceeding with his purchase attempt. While not thought to be likely, it is just another weapon in the arsenal in case the relocation and sale are approved by the NBA.
Things just keep getting more and more interesting.
And, to add to the fun, there is speculation that Kevin Johnson might have still one more ace up his sleeve. Hey, at least no one is bored.
