SEATTLE (AP) - After nearly four months of pondering the return of professional basketball, Seattle was left feeling jilted again after the NBA Board of Governors rejected the prospective relocation of the Sacramento Kings with no promise of a future team for fans in the Puget Sound region.
The board voted 22-8 Wednesday in Dallas to deny the move of the franchise. That set off a string of anger and frustration on social media from NBA fans in Seattle anxious at the possibility of seeing the SuperSonics return.
Instead, it's another waiting game for Sonics fans.
If there is hope for Seattle fans, it came from NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver, who indicated that expansion was discussed for the future and, "We fully expect we will return there one day."
