Sources: NBA Wants Maloofs To Sell Kings To Seattle

David Stern will retire on Feb. 1, 2014 as commissioner of the NBA, and one of his final goals is to bring a franchise back to Seattle, according to sources.

Stern has become an ally of Steve Ballmer's group. Ballmer has been trying to get the Maloof family to sell the Sacramento Kings.

Sources say the league office is putting increased pressure on the Maloofs to sell the Kings.

"Stern has enough time to get a team back to Seattle, but he'll let Silver deal with the crowd [booing] on opening night," said a source.

I think Stern should grow back his mustache.

It's not just Stern's desire to save "his legacy" and bring back a team to Seattle. Seattle finally decided to build a stadium and the Lakers and Clippers don't want the Kings in Anaheim. It's natural that the NBA would want to get a team into the Seattle area.

I'm not sure it would work though. The Bobcats still haven't been embraced by the Charlotte crowd. Even with Michael Jordan as their owner. New Orleans hasn't exactly embraced the Hornets either. They're still an LSU and Saints town.
