a last ditch effort???
The Seattle City Council
to terminate the lease early and collect $45 million from the team's out-of-state owners and allow them to move the team to Oklahoma City.
But the ordinance doesn't take effect for
after it is signed by the mayor, giving residents and basketball fans time to collect enough signatures for
a referendum and giving voters a chance in November to overturn the ordinance.
City Attorney Tom Carr was unavailable for comment Friday.
A referendum is possible
," said Ruth Bowman, a spokeswoman for Carr's office.
"If it gets enough votes, it would cancel the ordinance." Beyond that, "nobody knows what will happen."
RBP note: could this drama continue???
