allen already owns the blazers so i dont think the nba would allow him another team

steve ballmer, from microsoft, had headed up the ownership team that wanted to put money into it before but once their own deadline came and went, i havent heard anything else

freddie brown and gary payton supposedly are trying to get it together too. also, ex-sonic james donaldson was elected to the seattle city council with getting the sonics back as part of his campaign-- we will see...
