Wilson To Be Involved In Sonic Arena Effort

It was announced this week that Seahawk quarterback Russell Wilson will partner with Bay Area hedge fund manager Chris Hansen in an effort to bring NBA basketball back to Seattle. 
The CBS NBA site writes that there are rumors of a possible NBA expansion with the possibility of a new Seattle franchise.  That would probably be a much better scenario for the image conscious Wilson rather than being know for efforts to relocate another city's team. 
The association with Wilson, brings local respect to a group that has most recently gotten a cold shoulder from Seattle leaders.  Much of that due to word that Hansen was involved in efforts to stop the building of an arena in Sacramento, where a few years ago, Hansen was almost able to buy the Kings and relocate the team. 
Bringing an NHL franchise to the city was another goal of the Hansen group.
