Don't worry about all the lawsuits. This is SOP for rich guys doing big $$ deals. People in corporations all have lawyers and sue each other constantly. This is the envirement Chris Hanson lives in. He knows what he is doing. He will win.

Sooo I heard on KJR, from Brian Robinson's mouth, through my speakers to my ears, that approval for Hansen's group could come as soon as All Star Weekend or sooner.

That's the only news I'm gonna need to hear personally to start popping champagne like Chris Bosh.

I'm not sure he has that many friends. 2 or 3 might require several reloading periods.

KJ is holding a press conference at 2 to announce their whale(s).

Edit: Or not.

Brian Robinson made a post last night on SonicsRising saying that Seattle will have even bigger news, if not this week, then soon.

Actually, though, no presser announced. There was a misunderstanding.

Anyone hear if Hanson's 30 million dollar payment to the Maloofs was paid, it was supposed to be yesterday or today I think?

That gives Hanson's lawyers a huge weapon. It's an important step.

I said battle, not war!

No one said to Hansen to pull the $30m of the table at the last minute, so I'm guessing we just passed one marker. Now it's all about the vetting and approval which could happen at anytime.

Ahh I see the broker a deal not to file a lawsuit for Bennett leaving for 45 million and then screw up the collection of that money by doing nothing and allowing Bennett to not be contested in a legal arena and keep his money also. Nice job, now they they are holding Hansens feet to the fire on every little thing.

I just know they let Bennett off the hook for $30 million when they didn't want to even try to get Key Arena renovated, that had to happen by 2009, and if we had an NBA compatible arena by 2012 and no team, he owed some more, we let him off the hook.

On Northwest Sports tonight, Paul Silvi talked about how the deal has hit another snag. I guess some lawyers found that before the Maloofs are technically allowed to sell to Hansen's group, the Maloofs must first allow the minority owners a chance to buy their, the Maloof's, share or something related to that.

Yeah, that's actually been news for a couple weeks now I think.

Anyone heard anything new (past few days) about this? I wonder what has happened to that $30 million non-refundable check that Hansen was supposed to make out to the Maloofs on Feb 1st.

ROFR has been called a nonissue by both Hansen's lawyers and supposedly NBA lawyers who have all seen the contracts.

The $30m was placed in escrow, so assuming Hansen hasn't pulled out of the deal quietly before the Feb 1st deadline, the money was transferred to the Maloofs.

The most up to date explanation of the Right of First refusal is here:
http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/ ... r-seattle/

Note that one of the writers is from Sacramento.

I think it is absolutely ridiculous to suggest that this contract clause is a "snag" or "surprise". I am certain that the Seattle group and the Maloofs had their attorneys spend tons of hours reviewing this contract, and the decision was made that the sale would be legal, so they proceeded. I guarantee that no one in the Seattle group is being surprised with this news.

All that matters is NBA approval at this point.

That article really doesn't make things look very good for us at this point

Only if you assume that Hansen and Ballmer's team of lawyers + the NBA lawyers who looked at it either completely missed these clauses or completely misinterpreted them.

How likely do you think that is?

Let's also keep in mind that the only minority owner saying that he received no notice of sale or was offered his ROFR is Cook, who is completely bankrupt and his share is now in the hands of the bankruptcy court, not him. He's got nothing. The other minority owners have indicated that they are not at liberty to speak at all, which makes me think they're in a loop that Cook is out of.

What date will we know one way or the other if there will be a team in Seattle next season? Is it all down to the NBA approving the move or could there still be issues after that?
