seems to think Hansen needs more money too, he doesn't see Hansen as the guy that would buy the team in the first place which makes sense.
Hansen has his own problems. He doesn’t have a team to activate the sequence in his MOU that could vacate Occidental Avenue South and begin construction. And until he gets that, he likely won’t get a financial partner to be the majority owner of the team (BTW, the NBA Houston Rockets were sold last week to a local buyer for $2.2 billion, or $200 million more than Hansen’s old partner, Steve Ballmer, paid for the Los Angeles Clippers. The price of entry grows steeper).

2019 NCAA regionals are off.

The project’s completion date assumes construction beginning in October 2018, preventing KeyArena from hosting the opening rounds of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament in March 2019. The city and OVG plan to contact the NCAA and the acting host, the University of Washington, to move the tournament and stage an ensuing edition later in a renovated facility.

Hilarious that they publish the MOU and then plan on contacting the NCAA about a little change of plans. I am sure the NCAA will be pleased as punch.

Our neighbors up north would rather have the arena in Sodo due to easier access from the train: https://twitter.com/AaronQ13Fox/status/ ... 6809550853

Vancouver BC definitely gets it. It's too bad that those who run Seattle don't. At least not at the moment.

I wondered how much OVG promised to contribute to slime ball Murray's legal defense fun in exchange for him smiling on their plan.

Ummm, don't know how "fun" the defense will be. Might be fun for some of us.
