The NBA is coming back to Seattle in 2018... For an exhibition game. The Sacramento Kings, yes, the same Kings that Chris Hansen and Steve Ballmer almost purchased from the Maloof family in 2013, will play the Golden State Warriors on October 6 at KeyArena. Golden State is the home and host team. It's the first time Durant could play in Seattle, since he was a member of the Sonics in his rookie season from 2007-08. According to the Sacramento Bee, the contract has not been signed between the two teams, but that is considered a formality. Oak View Group is scheduled to begin construction on KeyArena in October of 2018.
