Sale of Sonics approved to Bennett's group

NEW YORK (AP) NBA owners today unanimously approve the sale of the SuperSonics to a group headed by Oklahoma City businessman Clay Bennett, who says he wants to keep the team in Seattle.

Whether he does or not likely depends on if he gets a new building.

Bennett's group purchased the SuperSonics and WNBA's Storm from the Basketball Club of Seattle, led by Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz, on July 18th for $350 million.

That brought immediate speculation that the team would be moved to Oklahoma City. But Bennett said yesterday his focus now is on getting a new arena in Seattle, and not on what will happen if he doesn't.
