Council Comes Through

As reported by the Seattle Times' Jim Brunner, the Seattle City Council has approved a motion that would ensure the Sonics fulfill their lease with the City and KeyArena, keeping the team in town until 2010.

No word from Clay Bennett - yet - but I would expect some gobblegook about "legal action" and "negotiations" tossed about at some point. $50 says Bennett has one of his legal experts parrot the company line about how this ordinance is irrelevent and meaningless.

Kind of like Clay Bennett's promises.

That's fantastic news. I may be an out-of-towner, but I've always liked the Sonics and I hope they don't ever leave Seattle. Good move by the city council.

I'm glad the city-council buys us some time so we can possibly get a reasonable deal done.
