The city of Orlando is getting a new events center which will include a new arenas for the Orlando Magic. Full details are on InsideHoops.com.
With several teams, including the Sacramento Kings and Seattle SuperSonics, having arena issues, it’s always good when something like this gets resolved. The Kings are probably sticking around in Sacramento thanks to massive fan support, though the lure of Las Vegas or another city could interest the Maloof Family.
The Sonics are owned by people who are trying to work things out with the city of Seattle but may want that to fail so they can take the team to their home of Oklahoma City. It is widely expected that this will happen, even if it means the team breaking a lease agreement that runs years longer, probably resulting in a legal battle between Seattle and the team.
