Inside a election Tuesday evening, the Sacramento City Council required one step closer toward saving their city’s National basketball association team. It isn't very good news - but it’s pretty good news, by itself - for Dallas basketball fans the scramble for that Nobleman is not even close to over.

The Sacramento government, that has until March 1 to develop a financing arrange for a brand new National basketball association arena, chosen to permit city staff to initiate talks with 11 firms thinking about leasing downtown parking within the city, The Sacramento Bee reported. Underneath the parking plan, the town could raise 1 / 2 of the nearly $400 million required to develop a new arena.

If no financing plan's in position by March 1, Sacramento could lose the Nobleman - plus they could finish up in Dallas.

Christopher Hansen, a Bay Area hedge-fund manager who was raised in Dallas, hopes to construct a brand new National basketball association and NHL arena south of Safeco Area, and it has been developing his plan using the city and also the National basketball association for any year. If Dallas were to obtain the Nobleman, they could play at KeyArena - the Sonics’ old home - on the temporary basis, until a brand new venue is completed. Prior to the Sonics even left for Oklahoma City, and grew to become the Thunder, the National basketball association had declared KeyArena an unacceptable venue.
