The City of Seattle made significant progress in bringing in an NBA or NHL team on Monday when Seattle’s City Council passed a Memorandum of Understanding on Monday that would allow for a proposed $650M renovation of Key Arena.
If all things go according to plan, the building could be ready to play by 2020, according to NBA.com’s David Aldridge.
The completely renovated Key Arena would hold 18,350 for NBA games and 17,150 for NHL games.
This moves Seattle closer to being NBA-ready by 2020, according to Chris Mannix of Yahoo Sports.
Over the summer NBA commissioner Adam Silver said that Seattle “no doubt be on a short list of cities we’ll look at” when discussing expansion or relocation.
Seattle lost its franchise, the Super Sonics, to Oklahoma City, who are now known as the Thunder, back in 2008.

Kings’ Buddy Hield Wants to Get Contract Extension Done
When it comes to a contract extension for Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield, he has made it crystal clear he wants to get a deal done so he can continue his career with the Kings.
The two sides have until October 21st to hammer out a contract extension in order to prevent Hield from hitting restricted free agency.
“We need to get that done,” Hield said, according to the Sacramento Bee’s Jason Anderson. “I want to get that done, for sure. If it doesn’t get done, things could go the other way. This is where I want to be, so it would be good for me to be here in Sacramento. If I’m their guy, I think they should make it happen already. I want to build a future here. I want to be here, but we have to see something. Something’s gotta come to the table. We have a week and a half to see what that brings, but I want to be here.”
Hield is coming off a career-year with the Kings, in which he averaged 20.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game last season.
