Seattle U arena will be rebuilt
Brought over from SU forum. Oak View group wins arena bid and will rebuild Key Arena. SU will play a few seasons in 999 seat Connolly Center, then move into state of the art new NBA Key Arena

Will the NBA return to Seattle?

I only see this happening if the league expands.

Yeah, only in expansion. But having an arena in Seattle will finally give the NBA incentive (at the very least) to add 2 teams in Seattle and Vegas/KC/Louisville or wherever

NBA will show up down the road but the NHL might be here much sooner.

Both the NHL and NBA said they wouldn't talk about coming to Seattle until the arena is built. Build it and I am pretty sure they will come. On the NBA side I think it would be wise to move the Blazers up to Seattle because it gives them a bigger market and allows them to attract and retain free agents. NHL will likely expand to 32 to make the conferences even.

Hope Seattle can at least sell out that tiny gym. It looked like fans were watching a golf match when I watched them play GCU there

Not to hijack this thread but, I'd like to hear the rationale/buzz with Seattle getting the NHL. I have heard nothing of this, and I follow hockey fairly closely. I only see it mention on these boards.

Currently mobile....away from the house or on "the throne."

Blazers aren't going anywhere.


I am sure the Arizona Coyotes to Seattle rumors will begin again.
