    NBA owners unanimously approved the sale of the SuperSonics on Tuesday to a group headed by Oklahoma City businessman Clay Bennett, who says he wants to keep the team in Seattle.

    Whether he does or not almost certainly depends on if he gets a new building.

    Bennett's group purchased the SuperSonics and WNBA's Storm from the Basketball Club of Seattle, led by Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz, on July 18 for $350 million.

    That brought immediate speculation that the team would be moved to Oklahoma City. But Bennett said his focus now is on getting a new arena in Seattle, and not on what will happen if he doesn't.

Old news. They only formalized the sale today but they announced it some time ago.

That's true of every NY team. The Yankees are higher than the Mets, the Rangers are higher than the Islanders, and the Giants and Jets....well, they don't apply since they don't really play in New York anyway. :)
