Chris Hansen comments on Ballmer news

Chris Hansen, who hopes to bring an NBA team to Seattle, posted a comment about the news of Steve Ballmer bidding $2 billion to buy the Los Angeles Clippers. Ballmer had worked with Hansen last year in an attempt to buy the Sacramento Kings and move that team to Seattle.

Hansen posted this comment this morning on sonicsarena.com:

First I would like to congratulate Steve Ballmer on his apparent successful bid for the Los Angeles Clippers. Steve’s passion for basketball and commitment to the NBA will make him a great owner and strong asset for the league.

I would also like to assure Seattle fans that my remaining partners and I remain committed to bringing the NBA back to Seattle. The environmental review process for the Seattle Arena is nearing completion and we will soon be in a strong position to attract a franchise back to the Emerald City.‚Äč
