Post#1 Seattle group gets Kings

It appears official finally. The Sonics are returning to Seattle!

Marc Stein reports that the Hansen group bought 65% of the Kings at a valuation of $525 million. Seems like giving the Maloofs a residual interest was the only way to make this happen.

Official in the sense that the league and teams have all been notified.

So the Kings are worth $810M? That crazy money. Sorry for the Kings fans. I can't see the owners not allowing this. This makes all their franchises worth alot more money, plus Seattle has an arena deal in place.

I'd find that very hard to believe.

That's most likely a 525 million valuation of the franchise, and they'd pay for 65% of it.

Surely he will edit and explain that further soon.

ESPN sources say no agreement yet reached on remaining 35 percent of Kings shares, which are held by minority investors, NOT Maloofs

525 mil is the valuation, not the purchase price. Hansen's group is forking out somewhere in the range of 340 mil.

Apparently leaving the Maloofs a residual interest was the only way to get this done.

Makes sense. ESPN is reporting a $525M deal. Still early, so $525 valuation makes more sense.

Still does not change anything for us, only thing changed is we will know our goal in terms of the offer we'll need to present at the BOG.

Nah, it was also reported that they had a "handshake" deal already done too. It was going to be announced eventually, we'll see what happens after this. It's not over yet.

Not that fast when you consider that they will play in Key Arena until the new facility is built.

Woj wasn't right before about the deal being done, I doubt that relocation committee would already be 100% behind the move. Still a month to go.
