Hill, Hoping For NBA Return, Thinks Sonics Will Stay Put

Updated:
TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Former SuperSonics coach Bob Hill says he still believes the team will find a way to get a new arena built and remain in Seattle.

Hill was in Oklahoma Monday for an appearance at a youth basketball camp at Holland High School in Tulsa.

Oklahoma City businessman Clay Bennett bought the SuperSonics last year and has said he's pessimistic the team will find a way to get a new arena built.

But Hill says the general sentiment is that Bennett is bluffing about a possible move and that the team will remain in Seattle.

Bennett fired Hill shortly after taking over the Sonics.

But while Hill says he thinks the SuperSonics will stay in Seattle, he says he thinks Oklahoma City will land an NBA franchise someday.
