From Seattle to Oklahoma City, the dollars-and-sense look at the deal that brought an NBA team here:
Amount the owners paid to purchase the franchise from a group headed by Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz in July 2006.
Projected cost of a proposed new Sonics arena in Bellevue, Wash. The Washington state legislature failed to vote on the measure by the owners' Oct. 31, 2007 deadline.
Cost of renovations to the Ford Center and construction of a new practice facility, both funded by a one-cent sales tax approved by 61.9 percent of nearly 45,000 Oklahoma City voters in March 2008.
The Oklahoma City-based ownership group's offer in February to settle a lawsuit aimed at keeping the team in Seattle. The city rejected the offer.
Amount owners will pay Seattle to settle the lawsuit. That's also the amount owed to the NBA as a relocation fee.
Amount owners will pay Seattle in 2013 unless: a)the Washington state legislature fails to authorize $75 million in funding for KeyArena renovations by the end of 2009 or b) Seattle obtains a new or relocated franchise in that five-year period.
