Seattle’s city council approves plan to build basketball arena
Seattle’s city council has approved a plan to build a new basketball arena.
That’s a big hit to supporters of bringing the NBA’s Sacramento Kings to the Beach, since Seattle’s plan of luring the Kings is much more developed than Virginia Beach’s.
Virginia Beach Mayor William Sessoms was in Philadelphia yesterday to discuss details of building an arena and still feels confident a team will relocate to the Beach.
“I think the golden thing is we have a partner named Comcast, and Live Nation, and they’re very, very good. Comcast, having owned the Philadelphia 76ers and currently owning the Philadelphia Flyers the hockey team, I think that gives me a great deal of confidence that they can produce what they say they’re going to do,” says Sessoms.
The NBA has no immediate plans on expansion.
Sessoms says the NHL is also something they’re looking into.
