SEATTLE (AP) - Investor Chris Hansen has congratulated Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson on his efforts to keep the Kings in California, while also vowing to keep up his pursuit of getting the NBA back to Seattle.
Hansen released a statement on his website on Monday afternoon. Given what Seattle went through with the loss of the SuperSonics in 2008, Hansen says if there was a ``silver lining'' for Seattle in his attempts to purchase the Kings, it was seeing the Sacramento fan base rally to help keep the franchise.
Hansen's attempts to purchase the Kings and move them to Seattle were denied by the NBA Board of Governors last week in Dallas.
Hansen again called on Seattle fans to remain patient in the attempts of his investor group to either purchase an existing franchise or work for an expansion team.
