More Sonics developments

The Seattle Times is reporting that the NBA worried last year that the Sonics Oklahoma owners may have violated their good faith promise to secure an arena deal in the Seattle area.

The Tacoma News Tribune is reporting that the same judge presiding over the case between the Sonics and city of Seattle will now preside over the case between the Sonics and Howard Schultz.

Also, Seattle Deputy Mayor Tim Ceis told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer that the city is nowhere close to negotiating with the Sonics on a settlement. That of course counters growing sentiments from other Seattle politicians and key players in the case who earlier this week expressed a desire to take a settlement under the right circumstances.

Here’s a good video some Sonics fans in Seattle put together on the night the Sonics arrived back in Seattle following their season finale at Golden State. It’s 5 minutes, 35 seconds and worth checking out…..

And finally, Eric Musselman, the former coach of the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings, waxed poetic about NBA fans in OKC on his blog which can be found here.
