With the Kings staying in Sacramento, Chris Hansen's Seattle group must turn elsewhere if they want to bring the NBA back to the Emerald City. The Minnesota Timberwolves have been rumored as a possible target, but owner Glen Taylor says that won't happen, according to Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN.com.
Taylor has had discussions with Hansen's group, but they would be dead-set on moving the Wolves to Seattle, which is simply not an option for the Wolves' owner. Taylor did hint Tuesday that there's major Wolves ownership news coming sometime in the next week.
As for Seattle, they must continue to regroup after the NBA's Relocation Committee voted to unanimously reject the Kings' sale to Hansen's group. An official vote by all the owners still must take place, but it's unlikely that they would go against the recommendation of the committee. And while Hansen has vowed to fight the NBA's decision, there may not be much he can do.
