RealGM Staff Report -

Seattle SuperSonics & Storm Chairman Clayton I. Bennett made the following statement on Friday regarding the future of the franchise.

"We notified Commissioner Stern that we intend to relocate the Sonics to Oklahoma City if we succeed in the pending litigation with the City, or are able to negotiate an early lease termination, or at the end of the lease term.

"We have not made a decision regarding the future location of the Seattle Storm. We appreciate the deep local interest and support for the Storm and have begun to evaluate a future course of action for the team.

"Notwithstanding the uncertainty and difficulty of this challenging time, we remain completely committed to the success of our basketball teams. We will continue to provide our players, coaches and staff the tools and support they need to be competitive." [hr][/hr]

I hope they do keep the Sonics in Seattle. "The Oklahoma City Sonics" doesn't sound right
.
And I'd like to add that I miss season threads.

That's awesome.

Oklahoma City without a doubt deserves an NBA franchise after last season.

This guy is a @#%$! OKC has no downtown life what so ever. Seattle > OKC any day, especially if I had to choose a town to own a NBA team in. Seattle has a HUGE market that is a sports market. OKC, come on...

Portland Trailblazers will be refuge team for some of the seattle bball fans.

Guess that conspiracy theory of allowing Seattle gettin' Oden/Durant to keep them there didn't hold up.

OKC is not an NBA city. Keep 'em in Seattle.

Tough when any team has to move locations, especially for being in an area for awhile.

I think Seattle deserves to see Kevin Durant grow and mature as a player right before their eyes... not some 2,000 miles away (dont' flame me, 2,000 is just a random number off the top of my head).

no offense but OKC is probably not as diverse as Seattle in terms of people and culture...you're right BG should buy the team...

also 3.2 mil vs roughly 1 mil in the greater population..cmon now.

another leveraging move by the owners..

if i were the fans I would...

Why is sonics management being stupid, they should do everything in their power to keep them in Seattle.

It would be a bad move.
