 OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -Washington's governor is asking the NBA to delay its scheduled vote on whether the Seattle SuperSonics can move to Oklahoma City.
In a letter to NBA Commissioner David Stern and team owners, Gov. Chris Gregoire said the Sonics' Oklahoma City owners apparently weren't acting in good faith while trying to get a stadium deal in Seattle.
That refers to recently disclosed e-mails that showed team owners discussing whether they could leave Seattle, even before a good-faith deadline for pursuing a Seattle stadium.
The letter is also signed by other top Washington state political leaders. It comes as a lawyer for former Sonics owner and Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz said he is preparing a lawsuit against the group Schultz sold the team to.
