Hansen Says Seattle NBA Hopes Will Continue

Investor Chris Hansen says the departure of Steve Ballmer from the group looking to bring the NBA back to Seattle won't derail his hopes of getting a team back in the region. Hansen told The Associated Press on Monday that he is confident he'll be able to find investors to take Ballmer's place in his group. He said it will likely take more than one person to replace Ballmer's investment, and he will not put a limit on the number of investors at this time. Seattle's hopes seemed to take a blow last week when Ballmer agreed to buy the Los Angeles Clippers for $2 billion. Hansen said that six or nine months from now, he'll still be trying to get his proposed arena built and acquire a franchise for Seattle. June 3, 2014
