NBA in Seattle

The latest news about the NBA's possible return to Seattle.

April 16, 2013 at 10:10 PM

More on delay of NBA vote

The news of the day on the Seattle/Sacramento battle  over the Kings was obviously the revelation that the league will not vote this week whether to approve the sale of the team to the Chris Hansen group.

And to be clear, that is what the specific vote is —to approve the sale, and then to approve relocation, though no none anywhere thinks they would approve one without the other, so they are in any logical view the same vote.

Here is our story wrapping up today’s events.

And here’s the Sacramento Bee story on today’s developments.

In the wake of the news today there were some reports that NBA by-laws require at least seven days for the Board of Governors to vote on a recommendation from a committee, and that might be why there would  be a delay.

I asked sports legal expert Michael McCann, who is also an on-air legal analyst for NBA-TV, about that. Here’s what he said:

“The rule is when NBA relocation committee issues recommendation, must be BOG vote in no fewer than 7 days and no more than 30 days. But here the NBA combined the relocation and finance committees to form special committee – unclear if bylaw rules apply the same to this new ad hoc committee. Whoever is the best NBA parliamentarian among owners will have a lot of influence here.”
