Councilmember Tim Burgess responds to NBA Board of Governors Decision
SEATTLE - City Councilmember Tim Burgess issued the following statement today after the NBA Board of Governors voted to keep the Kings in Sacramento:
"The NBA's decision is very disappointing to me and the thousands of Sonics fans in our city. I remain hopeful that Seattle can once again be home to NBA basketball in the coming years. Chris Hansen and his partners have displayed amazing commitment in their efforts to secure a team for Seattle's fans. The City's role has always been to prepare for a team should one be available. We will be prepared."
